87 Points, Wine Enthusiast - Best Buy, Not overly fruity up front; instead there's a strong hint of lettuce, greens and peach pit on the bouquet. The palate is more round and giving with a tropical blend of pineapple, citrus and apple flavors. Finishes dry and firm, making it perfectly good in the $12-and-under category.
Cordon Negro Brut is Freixenet's most popular cava, often referred to as the "Black Bottle Bubbly." It is the #1 imported sparkling wine in the world and still ideal for any occasion.
Cordon Negro Brut is crisp, clean and well balanced. The dosage is very dry, but the acidity is lower than most champagnes for a softer, smoother flavor. It is medium-bodied with apple, pear and bright citrus flavors and a moderately long and crisp, clean finish.
This wine pairs well with a wide range of food from shrimp salad to olive and tomato bruschetta to cheese appetizers!
Cordon Negro is a blend of three white Spanish grape varieties - Macabeo (35%), Xarel-lo (25%) and Parellada (40%). Macabeo produces a fairly light but fruity, aromatic wine of medium-high acidity - characteristics crucial to the production of sparkling wine. Xarel-lo yields a robust, high-acid wine and contributes power and depth. Parellada is the star of all cava blends. It has both beautiful demonstrative fruit and finesse.
