Freixenet Cava Brut Reserva Vintage 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Cordon Negro Brut is crisp, clean, and well balanced. It is medium-bodied with a palate of apple, pear and bright citrus flavors with a moderately long finish and a crisp touch of ginger. This wine is extremely versatile and pairs well with most food.

This gains a lot of overt fruitiness on the nose from the extra sugar in it's dosage. In the mouth it has rich apple, apricot and sweet citrus tones and a gently spicy finish that is carried along by the noticeable sweetness. It's not really that sweet, just noticeable and a little sticky on the finish. If you're looking for a round, easy to drink sparkling wine this just might fit the bill. 86pts.

Mineral and earth driven on the nose with linden flower, honey and candied lime aromas. Fairly light on the palate in a fresh, crisp style that showcases earthy flavors with hints of yeast, mushroom, apple and lemon pith. A fairly dry style with decent length and a nice dry snap on the finish. 86pts

This was quite a nice cava. Nice soft nose with some notes of butterscotch. Not quite enough bite on the palate for me but the butteriness continued right through the mouth. Not aware of the value as it was a gift.

Tasted this cava with some blinis. It is dry enough to go with maincourse and it has nice balanced taste. Not overly sparkling but has sufficient amount of bubbles. Balanced.

Light golden in color with lots of medium sized bubbles. The nose is a musty mess with honey, apple and light nut aromas. On the palate it has a fine sparkle and is completely dry. Flavors of honey, green apple, with an lightly creamy texture. The finish is short with green apple lingering for a bit. 3/5 [NR]

Extra Dry is a bit of a misnomer here. Its a decent sparkler, with lots of fruit on the nose, and a round richness. The sugar, while not over powering is clear, and the finish slightly sweet. Nice, and not cloying. Very approachable

Excellent QPR on this nutty, frothy, and citrusy sparkler. Not a harsh, unpleasant note to be found. Definitely a bargain.

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 a moderately long and clean finish.

Helle strohgelbe Farbe. In der Nase feine, intensive Fruchtnoten, dank Mehranteil von Parellada. Erfrischend, elegante Struktur mit angenehmem Säureverhältnis im Gaumen. Ein Cava mit Harmonie, eher trocken, lang anhaltend. ( Dosage: 9g/ Lt.)
