Freixenet Cava Brut Cordon Negro (1.5L)
Cordon Negro Brut is crisp, clean, and well balanced. It is medium-bodied with a palate of apple, pear and bright citrus flavors with a moderately long finish and a crisp touch of ginger. This wine is extremely versatile and pairs well with most food.
Backed by over 150 years of family-owned wine expertise, Freixenet‚Äôs exquisite cavas, artfully produced in the methode champenoise tradition, are Spanish sparkling wines of distinction that began their story with love. The romantic union of two of Spain‚Äôs oldest winemaking families began with a wedding that also brought the wineries under one roof as a business. Prospering through all of life‚Äôs joys, and enduring its sorrows, the Freixenet winery transformed its small start into a name known around the world. Gracefully gathering compliments, awards, and millions of cava fans, Freixenet applies the highest standards in winemaking for consistent quality and value. The third and fourth generations of the Ferrer family continue to attend to all the details that make their cavas the world‚Äôs preferred sparkling wines.
Wine Enthusiast 88 points – Keeps the Cordon Negro reputation healthy by delivering easygoing lemon-lime aromas and round citrus and apple flavors. As correct as one can ask for, this large-production cava features pure-fruit character and a perfectly good mouthfeel. For the money, we give it the proverbial high-five. M.S..December/2006
