Freixenet Cordon Negro Cava (Spain) Add to ...

  • Rating 87
  • Price $13.95

The global bargain in the familiar matte-black bottle is unfairly overlooked, I think, by today’s fashion-conscious prosecco crowd. Fact is, it’s made like Champagne (unlike the vast majority of proseccos) and slays most of its $15 Italian counterparts. It’s chalky and crisp, but with a sweet core of lemon and well balanced, with pinpoint-fine bubbles. On sale for $12.95 in Ontario until Jan. 6. $14.99 in B.C., $15.79 in Sask., $14.29 in Man., $14.25 in Que., $15.99 in N.B., $15.99 in N.S., $15.99 in Nfld., $14.98 in PEI.
