Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut 'Split'

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut 'Split'

Cordon Negro Brut is Freixenet’s most popular cava, often referred to as the “Black Bottle Bubbly.” It is the #1 imported sparkling wine in the world.

Tasting Notes

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


Freixenet produces only méthode champenoise sparkling wines. The wine goes through two fermentations with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle. Cordon Negro is aged for up to eighteen months in a cave.


“Apple-citrus aromas, light as a breeze, lead into the clear, bright citrus flavors of this well-made Cava. It's full of tangerine, lemon and lemon pith character, with a sparkly acidity and dry vivaciousness that would accompany shellfish.”
-Wine & Spirits, August 2003
