Description

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, though made of in glass these days, the style of the bottle remains unique. The UV-proof gold cellophane prevents light damage in transit (we prefer to leave ours in the gift boxes for optimal freshness). 2013 is a superlative Cristal... 98/100 James Suckling... twin 96/100’s from Wine Advocate & Decanter... Fine Wine Delivery panel have opted to take it to almost perfect status with 99/100. Magnificent and indulgent; exuding subtle power, delicate complexities, tiny bubbles and seductive layers of 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 cuvée, a celebration in itself not to be missed! Organically farmed, Cristal is one of the smallest Prestige Cuvée productions, with 2013 being smaller than usual.

Smells

White florals, yellow and red fruits, lightly toasted nuts and freshly baked brioche... totally seductive aromatics.

Tastes

A lovely firm, generous and complex palate with abundant length and a subtle freshly salted finish. Very focused throughout the entire palate and clearly up to a couple of decades of aging in a dark cellar left in its box. Seductive hints of brioche and roasted nuts thread the golden peach and strawberry fruits delivered in a caressing mousse... an utterly divine Prestige Champagne experience, clearly cerebral and will be forever etched in your memory.
