Codorníu Brut Cava Anna de Codorníu NV
Introduced in Spain over 25 years ago, Anna de Codorníu celebrates the life of Codorníu’s heiress and the dynasty she guided. “Anna” embodies Codorníu’s steeped traditions-- enological quality, careful viticulture, and innovation--and it was the first Cava to use Chardonnay in its cuvee. On account of its history and its exquisite taste, Anna de Codorníu has become Codorníu’s most emblematic product both at home in Spain and around the world. It has a straw yellow color with fine, persistent bubbles and delicate aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and lime.
Five centuries of history and experience make our cavas the perfect combination of tradition and modernity. We invite you on a virtual tour of Codorníu’s five centuries of history.
A mix of Chardonnay, Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada. Its apple and toasted bouquet blend together to create a delicate fresh flavor. It is the ideal accompaniment for seafood, pasta and rice dishes.
Lightly brownish pink with small bubbles in large quantities. Musty cherry nose with some strawberry too. Medium sized bubbles with a good mid range acidity. Palate of toasted vanilla(carmel?) w/subdued fruit and faded earth. Tasty though a bit strange. alt-3 c5a9t14o6=84 
Boa perlage, bom frescor com sabores de maca. Bom para aperitivo.
This is a underrated sparkling wine. Wonderful delicate flavours of light citrus blend with a smooth silky texture. A perfect aperitif.

I am not a huge sparkling wine fan, but friends who were living in Spain brought this back for us and we have had several bottles since!
One of my favourite standbys. Especially nice in the early afternoon.
External Reviews for Codorníu Brut Cava Anna de Codorníu
The nose begins with wheat grass and chopped chive before folding in peach, clover and honey. The palate runs toward melon, pear and green herbs, while the finish is dry, crisp and perfectly solid. As a whole, itandrsquo;s an easy, straightforward, mass-market cava that gets it more right than wrong.
Auge: klare, strohgelbe Farbe; Nase: eine aromatische Nase, die die Chardonnay-Traube widerspiegelt, verleiht diesem Cava eine ganz besondere und einzigartige Charakteristik; Gaumen: die Balance zwischen Säure und Restzucker verleiht dem Cava einen eleganten, fruchtigen und sanften Geschmack
With some toast and popcorn to fatten up the standard apple aromas, this is a fairly rich cava, especially given the price. Apple, pear and cinnamon flavors grace the palate, while the finish is persistent beyond expectations. Not overly bubbly but still lively. Strides better that your average quaffer.
Food Pairings for Codorníu Brut Cava Anna de Codorníu
The fruit aromas and flavors in this wine--red and yellow apples and pears, cooked and dried apples, toasted pears, and creamed bananas--creates drama. Yeastiness too is a factor with dough and baked brioche notes. The mouth is lighter and softer than the nose might suggest and there is a soft, lemon-pie note at the end.
<p>The Codorniu family started making wine in the 16th century and started producing cava in the late 19th. The Clasico uses the same blend of grapes used in its first Cava: Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada. It pairs well with nuts, dried fruits, and rice dishes.</p>
