Lustrous pale gold appearance. Very expressive nose, with an intensely floral bouquet fragrant with scents of almonds, hazelnuts and white flowers. A generous, rounded, creamy attack followed by a touch of acidity to mark a finish of elegant persistence. Light, fresh, undoubtedly a wine of admirable magnitude with time. A wine in keeping with the Cristal tradition, bearing all the hallmarks of a timeless pedigree influenced by the slight austerity yet elegant vinosity of the 1994 vintage.
Cuvée Cristal is the ideal accompaniment to foods of great delicacy, particularly caviar, fish and sea-food such as John Dory, prepared oysters, scallops, lobster and crayfish.
