Codorniu Cava Original Brut
Wine EnthusiastWith some toast and popcorn to fatten up the standard apple aromas, this is a fairly rich cava, especially given the price. Apple, pear and cinnamon flavors grace the palate, while the finish is persistent beyond expectations. Not overly bubbly but still lively. Strides better than your average quaffer.
Wine AdvocateThe non-vintage Original Brut Nature (known as "Classico" in Europe and Canada) has a light, primal, grapefruit-scented bouquet that is not going to harm anyone. The palate has a crisp, green apple-y entry with crisp acidity and a pleasant citric finish. Drink now.
Wine SpectatorPretty floral notes mix with baked apple and white peach flavors, with juicy citrus acidity keeping this lively. Moderate finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases imported.
