I had a look at the Brut Nature version of this wine last week and from what I can work out the only real difference between these two wines is dosage, the Brut has 8.8 grams per litre of residual sugar where as the Brut nature has less than 3. Again the blend is mostly Macabeo (60%) with the remainder Xarel-lo and Parellada (20% each).
I bought this bottle back from a tasting and shared it around the office, I am now quite popular as a result. Personally I prefer the Brut Nature, however I think the Brut is a lot more versatile with food. If you like a little bit of sweetness in your sparkling wine, this will be right up your alley. I found the main difference in taste between this and the Brut Nature the wine was a softening of the citrus characters and more apple and pear notes.
A pale gold in colour with a vigorous bead. There is a bit of sweetness, but the citrusy acid keeps the palate fresh. Apple and pear with a noticeable mineral tang. The bead is quite vigorous and it finishes of with a creamy fizz. 89 Pts.
