Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Fresh and inviting, dark in color but lively, with pear-accented black cherry, tobacco and spice flavors that come together smoothly on the long, expressive and dry finish. Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2021. 197 cases made.
I love the strawberry and persimmon character to this with spices and dried flowers. Full-bodied yet so fresh and vivid. Dried tea and cream. The tension and brightness are so wonderful. Turn up the volume! Drink now.

The 2009 Cristal literally shimmers on the palate, showing great depth and purity in its sumptuous layers of fruit. It is a magnificent wine endowed with superb length and exceptional overall balance. The 2009 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The percentage of wine aged in oak is 15%, which is down slightly from previous vintages.
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.
