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 a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay making 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). Cristal 2014 is now only the third fully biodynamic vintage, a long term commitment to our planet and the utmost quality in their wines.

Smells

delicacy rules supreme on the bouquet, with aromas of citrus fruit, white lilies, yellow fruits, roasted nuts, with hints of sourdough crust and honeycomb, the descriptives are endless.

Tastes

a very expressive palate with complex fruit flavours, orange rind, and fresh figs underpinning bright and finely sculptured green fruits. Layers of complexity, a compelling wine pixilated with grapefruit and perfumed floral notes. A wine almost of two halves, a rich and fleshy core of fruit girdled by the fine, detailed, and crystalline acid stream. The finish is long, and intense with a delectable chalky texture. A Champagne with a long life ahead.
