Product Details

The first bottle of Freixenet was released in 1914, the creation of a couple named Pedro Ferrer & Dolores Sala who were both from winemaking families. In 1889, Pedro Ferrer married Dolores Sala, whose family had been making wine at their Casa Sala property since 1861. Pedro's nickname was "El Freixenet", named after his family's ranch "La Freixeneda", which means ash tree grove in Catalan. Dolores' keen interest in the winemaking process was easily complemented by Pedro's business savvy and sense of community. Their marriage coincided with the arrival of the Phylloxera plague in Spain, which wiped out most of Europe's vineyards. Far from being deterred, the couple replanted their decimated land with white varietals to make sparkling wine. In 1914, the first bottles were released with Pedro's childhood nickname on the label. Freixenet had been born. Freixenet Cordon Negro Extra Dry is a delightful sparkling wine with a touch of sweetness. It presents a pale straw-yellow color with fine bubbles that create a persistent mousse. On the nose, it reveals aromas of ripe orchard fruits, citrus zest, and hints of floral notes. The palate offers a harmonious balance of fruitiness and crisp acidity, with flavors of green apple, pear, and a touch of honey. The slightly sweet finish lingers, leaving a refreshing and satisfying impression.

  • A blend of Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada
  • The fresh palate of apple, ripe pear and bright citrus flavors combine with a long finish and an exciting touch of ginger
  • Pair Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut with anything from Eggs Benedict to seafood, such as lobster or bluefin tuna
