95 points "Robert Parker's Wine Advocate—95 Points: The 2005 III Lustros Gran Reserva Brut Nature (disgorged January 2012) is a blend of 70% Xarello and 30% Macabeu from the 5-hectare -La Plana- vineyard that lies 200 meters above sea-level. It spends seven years on the lees and is dosaged with 100-year-old Solera wine. It possesses brilliant clarity on the nose with touches of oyster shell, citrus lemon, wet limestone and yellow flowers. The palate is supremely well-balanced with electrifying acidity on the entry, displaying subtle notes of apricot, lemon curd and quince that lead to a perfectly balanced finish. This is a wonderful Cava that deserves 2-3 hours aeration. Drink now-2018+" Best 2012-2018
