Freixenet, the most trusted and recognizable bubbly in America, proudly announces the arrival of Cordon Negro Sweet Cuvée, the newest wine in the stylish line of Black Bottle Bubblies! Fresh, deliciously sweet and fruity, Cordon Negro Sweet Cuvée is designed for those who enjoy the sweeter things in life.
Cordon Negro Sweet Cuvée is delicious, refreshing and smooth. It exhibits aromas of peaches and cream with lively bubbles that raise through the glass. Fruity ripe summer peach and tropical fruit flavors culminate in a long, silky sweet finish.
This sweet sparkler pairs well with a variety of dishes and cuisine, ranging from tried and true pairings like oysters, seafood, and desserts, to more surprising pairings like spicy foods, pizza, and popcorn.
The grape varieties used in the creation of the base wine for this cava are Macabeo (35%), Xarel-lo (25%) and Parellada (40%). Macabeo produces a fairly light but fruity, aromatic wine of medium-high acidity – characteristics crucial to the production of sparkling wine. It is also an important grape in the aging process because its must does not readily oxidize. Xarel-lo yields a robust, high-acid wine and contributes power and depth. Parellada is the star of all cava blends. It has both beautiful demonstrative fruit and finesse.
