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 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.

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.

Very peachy smell. Sparkly. Very nice and complex flavors. Incredibly drinkable.

White gold in color with medium sized semi-active bubbles. On the nose, I'm primarily hit by pear, bread and raw almond notes. This is a delicate but present flavor. In the mouth, the wine fully coats my tongue, with light flavors of mineral, pear and a touch of bread notes that linger right near the end. Well integrated, good structure, yet not the star of the party.

Pouco frutado no nariz (menos que o esperado). Adstringente. Não muito fácil de tomar sozinho, talvez com alguma fruta critica junto fique melhor.

The sweet and waxy aromas are similar to what you might get from an aromatized candle. The palate is sugary and soda-like, with flavors of sweetened lime and apple wedges. And the finish seems a bit like 7-Up. Best for those who like a sweeter bubbly.

Flavors of ginger, honey and orange peel are backed by a good vein of acidity in this refreshing, well-balanced bubbly. Drink now.

Leesy and broad up front before a tight scent of apples emerges in the middle, this is vinous, sprightly and gentle. For a white-on-white birthday cake.

Sweet baked apple flavors run through this sparkler, along with a lime-talc bitterness for balance. For jamón Serrano.

The vanilla, cream and apple flavors show intensity in this richly textured sparkler. It has more depth than many Cavas, yet remains fresh and fruity, with a slightly sweet finish. Drink now. -TM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Spain. N.V. Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut 750ml

Clean and approachable, with lemon-lime aromas leading to an easy, mildly crisp palate with lemon, lime and honeydew flavors. Sweet in accordance with standard extra dry guidelines, and also good for apéritifs and sparkling cocktails.

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a light, very modern Cava, much appreciated for its refreshing style and created from a special blend of the three traditional, indigenous Penedes white varieties. It is pale yellow with bright hints of green and a fine, persistent, and abundant sparkle lifting to a good crown. The fine, delicate aromas combine tones of green apple and pear with light resonances of peach, melon, and pineapple over a base of citrus, which are all beautifully balanced by light toasty aromas from bottle maturation.

Tasting Notes:

Perhaps the poster child for Cava’s success in the international marketplace, Cordón Negro is clean and crisp, with just a bit of residual sugar in the middle and finish. Cava’s typical citrus notes prevail, but the sugar adds a more tropical hint to the wine, and there is a sweet apple candy note as well.
