* Vintage information
The 2008 vintage was characterised 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.
1996 빈티지를 연상시키는 놀라운 파워와 Cristal 특유의 우아함이 완벽하게 조화를 이룬 샴페인이다.
지금도 충분히 매력적이지만 10년 정도의 셀러링을 거친다면 이 와인의 진면목을 서서히 알수 있을듯..
