Frexienet Cordon Negro Brut N.V. wine review by (PB)
This inexpensive sparkler from Spain pronounced (Fresh-a-net) is one of the many "Cava's" coming out of Spain that are just tasty and refreshing. At under $10, this wine is a value with a pale straw hue and apple-cream aromas with a bouquet of light creme brulee.
In the mouth this wine is dry as dust (Brut means "dry") with no more than 6 grams of sugar per liter.
Although scant bubbles, they are lively and there is a cirtusy mid-palate. The wine has a nutty finish with citrus notes. At this price, it's hard to go wrong. Raise a glass!
