Freixenet Extra Dry Cava Cordon Negro 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit sweet and citrussy on the nose with some slightly funky earthy notes. Soft in the mouth with fairly refined bubbles. This is well-balanced and round showing off a nice blend of green and yellow citrus notes, a little yeasty complexity and lovely apple and pear flavors. A little sweet but at the same time well balanced with penetrating acidity that drives the finish. 87pts

A crisp, dry cava with tangerine and apple flavors. PAIR WITH/ Jalapeno Crab Cakes with Slaw and Salsa."

Simple pear-like flavors give this Cava the sweet ripeness of fruit. Its soft scents of cardamom and Indian spice make this an easy aperitif with patatas bravas.

Clean and approachable, with lemon-lime aromas leading to an easy, mildly crisp palate with lemon, lime and honeydew flavors. Sweet in accordance with standard extra dry guidelines, and also good for apandeacute;ritifs and sparkling cocktails.

One of my personal favorites among the giant collection of Freixenet cavas is the extra dry, which isn't dry in the least. Just the opposite, it's loaded with sweet apple and apricot aromas along with peach, melon and candied citrus flavors. Best of all, it maintains its poise while never falling toward cloying or sappy. - M.S.

Flavors of ginger, honey and orange peel are backed by a good vein of acidity in this refreshing, well-balanced bubbly. Drink now.

Citrusy on the nose, with just a hint of sulfuric burn and smoke. Flavors of sweet white grapefruit, tangerine and tarragon leaf give the palate that little bit extra, while the finish is smooth but short. Good but a touch flat on the back end and finish.
