Cellars Escoda Sanahuja presents this beautiful white wine, Els Bassotets from Conca de Barbera in Catalonia, Spain. A blend of Macabeu and Chenin Blanc.
It's hard for me to express what it meant to find this wine at Punchdown last week. When I saw it on the menu, only for sale by-the-glass, I immediately was flooded with memories of the first time I tried it.
I've already wrote about that magical evening in the small village of Begur when we discovered it. Trying it again now, while so far from the place where love is spoken, was bittersweet.
It brought me comfort to know that some things can come back to you and still be as wonderful as the first time you met.
