Cordon Negro Brut

Cordon Negro Brut is Freixenet’s (pronounced “fresh Annette”) most popular sparkling, often referred to as the “Black Bottle Bubbly.” It is the number 1 selling sparkling wine in the world.

Cordon Negro Brut is crisp, clean and well balanced. The dosage is very dry, but the acidity is lower than most sparkling wines for a softer, smoother flavour. It is medium-bodied with a moderately long and clean finish.

Cordon Negro is a blend of three white Spanish grape varieties called Parellada (40%), Macabeo (35%) and Xarel-lo (25%). Macabeo produces a light aromatic wine of medium-high acidity. Xarel-lo yields a robust, high-acid wine and contributes power and depth.

Parellada is the star of all sparkling blends. It has both beautiful demonstrative fruit and finesse.

Freixenet produces only methode champenoise sparkling wines. The wine goes through two fermentations with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle. Cordon Negro Brut is then aged for up to 24 months in the 54kms of caves located at the Freixenet winery in Sant Sadurni d’Anoia just south of Barcelona.

Cordon Negro is best enjoyed with seafood, and fresh salads, however it is a perfect accompaniment or aperitif to a variety of foods.

 Cava, a taste for moderation
