Production note

The grapes for Cristal are taken from exclusively Grand Cru vineyards, 15-20% oak fermentation with a dosage of about 10 grams per litre. The wine is left to mature on its lees for an average of five years and spends a minimum period of eight months in the cellar after disgorgement.
