Cristal is a remarkably balanced and refined champagne whose length is inimitable. It has a silky texture and fruity aromas, complemented by a powerful mineral quality with white fruit and citrus notes. Cristal is a wine that keeps well: it can be conserved for over twenty years without losing its freshness and character.

Description

Intense, bright, and luminous golden hue.

Dynamic effervescence with a continuous stream of fine bubbles.

Intense, fragrant bouquet of great purity. Concentrated and candied citrus fruit mingle delicately with notes of grain and lightly roasted almonds. The lovely sensation of big ripe fruit is balanced and lifted by energetic fresh tangy overtones.

Fruity palate with a silky texture, complemented by soft bubbles that are perfectly integrated and deliciously elegant. The purity and perfection of the ripe yellow fruit melt into the intense chalky freshness, typical of Cristal, which is both powdery and saline.

Dense, juicy, concentrated, and long on the mid-palate, thanks to the spicy and sappy structure resulting from partial aging in large oak vats (foudres).

The finish builds to a crescendo, revealing a rich grainy, and velvety texture that is wrapped in a long, saline, and superbly elegant finish.
