Cristal Rosé 2007 is a great classic of freshness and substance. This vintage allows the terroir to come to the fore, producing this concentration of purity, precision, and elegance.
It has a light pink hue with green and brown highlights.
There is a regular and persistent stream of extremely delicate and dynamic bubbles.
A fresh bouquet that is both intense and refined. The initial description is 'salty': a blend of petals and dried flowers delicately spiced (white pepper) by the beginnings of oxidation and zests of bloody orange. There is a sensation of the fullness and vivacity of a fine end to the summer, profiting from the warmth of the last rays of sunshine-such concentration and energy! The lightly toasted almond notes strengthen this sensation of sweetness.
The mouth is an intense and concentrated blend of fruit. The attack is 'high' in energy: the full force of the great concentrated wine comes to the fore! Orange zest, with juicy and unctuous fruit, complements this impression of concentrated fruitiness. The tannins, with their sappiness, delineate the precise and pure contours of the wine's solid structure. Finally, the long and persistent freshness, enhanced by the right dosage, provides a long finish and reveals almost Bourguignon grainy tannins.
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. Beautifully pale in color, this is the latest release of Cristal Rosé. It is ripe and full in the mouth, packed with fruit and also with intense acidity that cuts through the soft texture. There is a hint of bottle age, giving the wine a toasty complexity that brings a balance to this great wine. Drink now, although this vintage will certainly last to 2020 and beyond.
