DESCRIPTION

Freixenet’s most popular cava, Cordon Negro Brut is often referred to as the “Black Bottle Bubbly.” As the #1 imported sparkling wine in the world, crisp and creamy Cordon Negro Brut’s delicate bubbles make this the ideal wine for any occasion. Get ready to sparkle!

Winemaking:

Harvested by hand, the selection of ripening grapes in Freixenet's vineyards reaches across the span of several months. From the end of August for the harvest of the warm weather Macabeu grapes, through the beginning of October for the higher elevation Parellada variety, our winemaker awaits the perfect time to gather each bunch, letting the vines tell him when they are ready. The first fermentation is nurtured in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 57°- 60°F. Exclusively initiated from our own Freixenet cultures, the first fermentation is introduced into the tanks. After 10 to 12 days, the wine is racked and clarified as the blend is readied for bottling. The secondary fermentation finds the bottles of Cordon Negro cradled in the perfectly chilled caves for up to 18 months.  

Tasting notes:

Cordon Negro Brut is a crisp, clean and well-balanced 'cava' sparkling wine. The fresh palate of apple, ripe pear and bright citrus flavors combine with a long finish and an exciting touch of ginger. This brilliant, versatile cava goes well with just about everything.    

Pair Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut with anything from Eggs Benedict to seafood, such as lobster or bluefin tuna. It is also the perfect pre-prime rib cava selection for oyster, caviar, or sushi appetizers.

Grape varieties:

The grape varieties used in the creation of the base wine for this cava are Macabeu (35%), Xarel-lo (25%) and Parellada (40%). Macabeu grapes produce the deliciously light, fruity aromas and medium-high acidity that high quality sparkling wines strive to achieve. The must of the Macabeo grape, not one to readily oxidize, assists in the aging process. The Xarel-lo grape yields robust acidity, contributing power and depth. The star of all cava blends, the Parellada grape demonstrates an elegant combination of fruit and finesse. The dosage of 9 grams per liter keeps the balance blissful.

Drinking temperature: 6-8 °C.
Acidity: 6.0 g/l.
