"Freixenet's signature Cava is consistent and pure as usual, with aromas of white fruit and white pepper and an overall freshness on the nose. It feels crisp and focused, with a foamy palate that brings apple, lime, peach and spice flavors. The finish is smooth."

Excellent By The Glass Choice
"Classic cava; yeasty, clean, lemony, simple, and somewhat short on the short, but not too sweet; yeasty apples in the finish. Aperitif or cocktail bubbly."

Winner of The Wine Trials 2011
"For the third year in a row, this wine impressed our blind tasters with mouthwatering acidity and enticing aromas. And don't worry-despite Freixenet's relentless advertising featuring dangerously attractive people partying with celebrities, there's no rule against frumpy or non-celebratory drinkers. Which is good, because we enjoy this one anytime."

"This is your quintessential simple quaffamong brut cavas.lt's clean, lime-tinged and soda-like on the nose, with a correct, no-issues palate that pushes zesty apple along with sweet papaya, mango and banana flavors. It's slightly sweet and tropical, but still it holds onto its crisp qualities and dryness. No complaints for the money."

RECOMMENDED
"Pour a glass of this Spanish sparkling when guests arrive, just in case you're still prepping the dinner. The tropical notes and dry, firm finish will appease them until your feast is ready. Pairing: any appetizers or starters."

RECOMMENDED
"An amazing value at $14, this cava is a rich gold in the glass and goes down far too easy, tasting like honey tinged with just a little bit of peach. The wine isn't very fruity, but it's incredibly approachable with a creamy texture thanks to the gigantic bubbles that rise slowly from the bottom of the glass."
