Rovira Baqués is a new producer to us but a very old one in Penedès, Spain. The Ferrer family has been in Sant Sadurni d'Anoia, the epicenter of fine Cava production in Penedès, since 1635. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Ferrer family line was left without any direct heirs so the property was inherited by a nephew, Josep Rovira, and subsequent generations of Roviras have been running the company ever since. Amongst the current operating family members, Joan Rovira worked in Champagne, France and was inspired to plant Chardonnay in their estate vineyards and make it a prominent component in their Cava. Perhaps that's what makes this wine so unique. It drinks more like Champagne than Cava, with 60% Chardonnay, 20% Xarel-lo and 20% Macabeo and a very low dosage of 3-5 grams per litre, making it one of the driest Cavas around. It has a lovely soft texture and delicate, non-aggressive bubbles. It's like drinking Champagne on a Cava budget!
