Lemon and peach is what I taste, and the wine itself is a demi-sec, which is a way of saying that it's half sweet. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the levels of dosage of champagne, it's almost the top level of sweetness; most of the time you are drinking the dryest and lest sweet grades.

I usually stay away from Freixenet wines, because the ones that I normally see in the store are horrible, but I know that the company also makes some quality stuff, and that this was a Cava, which I had never noticed of their offerings before.

Back to the wine, it's actually not a bad thing, rather quite good, and it would be perfect with fish or chicken seasoned with lemon. Try it, you might like it.
