Further Details

By all accounts an extraordinary wine, even by the elevated standards of the brand. Chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon considers the 2008 his finest achievement in Cristal, and the critics have agreed enthusiastically.

This vintage was aged for ten years before release, with eight years' bottle ageing. Minimal use of yeast in the secondary fermentation and this long period in bottle have contributed to a focused, linear wine with a long and fascinating maturity ahead of it.

‘…Hedonistic rather than intellectual. Very special…’

100/100 Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, December 2017
