Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

Tasting Notes:

This is buttery, offering flavors of peach, hazelnut and citronella. Shows fine intensity and structure, with balance and a lingering aftertaste of hazelnut, mineral and spice. Drink now through 2024. 65 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Puligny Montrachet Village was not affected by frost at all. Strangely, I actually prefer the Chassagne-Montrachet Village on the nose, which was touched by frost. This just feels rather austere and aloof at the moment. The palate is better with crisp acidity, fine tension and an almost clinical, focused finish. Maybe what it just misses is some personality or character, and that may well develop with one or two years in bottle.

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.

Product Description:

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.
