17 Points, Best of the Year – João Paulo Martins – Vinhos de Portugal 2018
Messias Brut Milésime Grand Cuvée
Light citric color appearance in this sparkling wine, revealing delicate light grayish chromatic sensations, arising out of Baga red grape included on this blend, in conjunction with Bical and Chardonnay – the white ones. The aroma is still quite young, highlighting fresh notes of citrus fruits like lemons, wrapped in bread nuances and light toasty.
Very soft mouth feeling.
