Quick Review – The Poemo Brut Cava is made with Metodo Tradicional, basically a Spanish take on the classical Champagne blueprint. The result is a very nice and drinkable sparkling wine that is yeasty, with hints of toast and green apples. 87/100
If it pops and sparkles, sometimes I am not too concerned if the bottle is from Champagne. I’ve celebrated with Prosecco, toasted with California sparkling wine, and cheered with Asti.
If you really want the traditional French flavors, but don’t have the budget, Spanish Cava is a great alternative. The Poema Brut Cava (Buy Here) is made in accordance to the Metodo Tradicional, the Spanish equivalent of Methode Champenoise, Champagne methodology without the branding.
The wine pours out with fairly refined bubbles. True to the name, the Brut only shows a hint of sweetness. There’re notes of Apple, toast, and a tad bit of yeasty scent. Altogether a highly drinkable and approachable sparkler.
After a positive experience with Freixenet, and now the Poema, I think I’ll continue to venture into the dark bottles of Spanish sparkling wine.
