Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut is a very popular sparkling wine from Spain. While I wasn’t blown away by complexity it makes for a nice selection for everyday use.
Cordon Negro Brut has a light aroma that is full of notes of fruit.
I got a nice bouquet of fruit with some smaller hints of vanilla. There was a nice element of acidity that left me wanting more.
This Cava isn’t as crisp or well balanced as I prefer my sparkling wines to be. I found this bottle to land in a medium body so this would be ideal for a casual toasting or even making mimosas.
The finish was a bit tangy which I have never experienced previously, but it didn’t stop me.
The Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava is a nice straightforward sparkling wine that is good for everyday enjoyment. You won’t impress any bubbly enthusiasts but it will serve its purpose at $13.00 dollars a bottle. Cheers!
