Freixenet Cordon Negro Gran Selección Cava Brut NV

Treviso, Verona, Veneto, ItalyFreixenet's Cordon Negro is a classic for a reason. It's a fairly priced traditional method sparkling wine that captures the essence of Cava. There’s subtle toasty autolytic character from a short time on lees and a savouriness that I generally associate with Penedès' indigenous varieties. Underneath is green apple and lemon, but it's safe to say this is not an overly fruity wine. Medium-bodied, there’s surprising precision to the palate with a fine mousse leading to a dryish finish at 10 g/L residual sugar. Yes, Cava can reach much greater highs, but this is a solid everyday bubble.Tasted: 28 October 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 16.49 BCLS AB 15.49 select private retailers SK 15.99 SaskLiquor MB 15.69 Manitoba Liquor Mart ON 14.95 LCBO NB 18.49 NBLiquor NS 16.97 NSLC PEI 17.50 PEILCC NF 17.99 NLLC Producer: FreixenetDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
