The legendary Cristal Champagne now available for a limited time.  Treat yourself to one of the world's highest-rated and best Champagnes made. 100 Points Wine & Spirits: " Levi Dalton at Convivio (NYC) compared this wine to the pianist who hits the right keys at the right moment. He's referring to the precision of the wine, which is astonishing. There is no singular flavor, but rather a resonant chord, a series of oppositions that create the invisible intensity of an electric current, the power of the charge balanced by the elegance of the flavor and the structure of the wine. You could describe it as light and brisk, or bold and intense; either way, you'll still be tasting it ten minutes later. As Peter Liem pointed out, "You could use any descriptor in the world and apply it to this wine. It is an Ur wine." The most exciting thing about it is the thought of what it will become."

Straw gold in the glass. White mousse dissipates rather quickly. Fine persistent bubbles. Modest and very subtle nose matches lean plate of green apple up front and lemon mid palate. Firm mouth-watering acidity; surprising to is for a wine of this age. Very short, bright finish.

Really love this vintage, there's such a great acidic backbone showing through, these wines always need as much time as you can give them, they're quite often popped too early in the club...
