"Such attractive, fresh, floral aromas here with fine bread, hints of white almonds and a lemon edge. White cherries and strong, chalky minerals, too. The palate has a very composed feel. Seamless and quite silky texture with effortless length and flow. Very fluid and composed. Very late, warming almond flavors. This is very long and smooth with a velvety finish. Super long pinot weight. Resolved and drinkable, but will age so well."
98/100 James Suckling
Cristal belongs to the luxury Champagne category, a very exclusive club of prestige Cuvées including Salon, Krug, Dom Perignon, Bollinger Grande Année, Taittinger Comtes, Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill etc. It's blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay makes it princely and sophisticated with unconstrained length. There are numerous mesmerising Champagnes in the luxury cuvée category, but our favourite and that of our customers is Cristal.
Originally bottled for Tsar Nicholas II, he feared assassination attempts so specified a clear, puntless bottle made of crystal. The UV-proof gold cellophane prevents light damage in transit (we prefer to leave ours in the gift boxes for optimal freshness). 2012 is a superlative Cristal. 4 outstanding ratings from the world's finest critics attest to that! Magnificent and indulgent; exuding subtle power, delicate complexities, tiny bubbles and seductive Champagne tastes.
Cerebral enjoyment with or without food - drink young or cellar for 10-20 years. At Fine Wine Delivery we believe it is the ultimate in vintage luxury cuvee, a celebration not to be missed!
