Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava Review

Type: Sparkling Wine
Color: Light pale straw yellow
Grapes: Parellada, Macabeo, Xarel-lo
Country: Spain

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.

Nose:
Cordon Negro Brut has a light aroma that is full of notes of fruit.

Flavor Profile:
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.

Body:
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.

Finish:
The finish was a bit tangy which I have never experienced previously, but it didn’t stop me.

Verdict:
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!

    Try mixing it with your favorite juice (the lighter the better, cranberry, watermelon, lemonade juice etc.) put it in a nice punch container with a funnel & enjoy the party..
    1.5L goes a long way for the price..
    Peace

    1. Free,

      I agree. This is a good bottle to use in any mimosa. Also if you want to add some character to your sangria, use this Cava. You won’t be dissapointed!
