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). 2015 is a magnificent Cristal... 98/100 rated – our panel mirrored that. Majestic and indulgent; exuding subtle power, delicate complexities, tiny bubbles and seductive layers of Champagne tastes. Mesmerising 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 of life itself! Organically farmed, Cristal is one of the smallest Prestige Cuvée productions, with 2015 smaller than usual.

Smells

White florals, fine lemon and mandarin, biscuit, toasted nuts, hints of white chocolate and spices.

Tastes

Broad, mouth filling and concentrated... layered with a mix of delicate fruit and nutty, toasty, bakery inspired lees aging characters. Numerous other complexities including white chocolate and fine liquorice drive continuous interest throughout the elegantly buoyed and unerringly persistent palate. Once tasted... Cristal 2015 will stay forever etched in your memory.
