Straw-yellow in the glass and mid+ carbonation. Yeasty and fresh cut apple aroma. Palate displays crisp apple and pear. Good acidity.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light and fresh aromas of lemon, pear and fresh minerailty. Soft bubbles and a slightly creamy palate. Light and refreshing bubbly! Pair with salty cheeses.
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The bubbles of my thirties... this black bottle has been to many a party. Light and fresh, with undertones of white fleshed fruits, I call this "casual bubbly". Not overly pretentious, it fares well with pasta salads and gourmet hot dogs and at this price point, I find no shame in making a mimosa.
Darlene Myers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crisp, clean and refreshing - this Spanish Cava was fruity and aromatic. It's the Spanish version of Champagne if you're not familiar with Cava. Some flavors of apples, pears and white pepper, it's a very refreshing wine that goes well with cheese, salads and bruschetta to name a few. Enjoy!
Sara M reviewed this wine as follows:

Beautifully balanced with notes of green apple, toast and citrus on the palate. Crisp, refreshing acidity that lasts well into the finish. A great everyday sparkling wine!




Natalie's Review

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava, Penedes, Spain: A toasty and refreshing sparkling wine at an incredibly great price! Delicious aromas and flavours of ripe pears and baked bread. Creamy layers of flavour and zippy finish make this bubbly perfect for a cocktail party or dinner companion. 216945 12% D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 89/100. December 3, 2020 Best Value Sparkling Wine.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
