From the bottle:
"Freixenet is crisp, dry, captivatingly smooth and hard to pronounce. Made in the traditional method, this sparkling wine with citrus aromas and apple flavors is bright and ready to enjoy. Give the pronunciation (Fresh-Eh-Net) and the wine a try!
The Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut starts with fresh aromas of apple and pear. That freshness and fruit carries over when tasting this crisp wine and there are also some added citrus flavors. The wine ends with a little citrus zest on the finish. You really can't go wrong with this nice basic bubbly.
