Cristal 2008 Vintage

Sale price£448.50


The Cristal 2008 is deep, intense and masterful. It offers the quintessential reflection of its chalk soils which lend its velvety texture and delicate tension. This wine’s energy has been tamed by an unusually long period of bottle aging: Cristal 2008 was in fact aged for 10 years before its release.

60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay

The 2008 vintage was characterized by an unusually dry and cool summer and undoubtedly falls into the 'continental' vintage category: dense and powerful owing to its exceptional concentration. Nevertheless, the unusually cool temperatures over the summer made their mark on the vintage, giving it a remarkable intense and saline freshness.
