Intense, bright and luminous golden hue.
Dynamic effervescence with a continuous stream of fine
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
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, that is both powdery and saline.
Dense, juicy, concentrated and long on the mid-palate,
thanks to the spicy and sappy structure resulting from
partial ageing 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.
This vivid Champagne shows up-front and linear definition, thanks to rapierlike acidity, with finely meshed flavors of ripe black cherry and mandarin orange fruit, raw almond, anise and cardamom spice as well as a touch of honeycomb, which all unfurl and expand on the fine, creamy palate. Sleek acidity continues through to the finish, with additional racy character provided by a streak of minerally saline and chalk, which gains momentum through the midpalate and rings out on the well-cut, lasting finish.
