Cristal Vinothèque 1999
This is the story of a "laboratory of time", one that pushes back the limits of eternal youth a little further every day.
A LABORATORY OF TIME
Cristal puts on a new identity, fashioned by a tailor-made ageing process and late disgorgement. Available as a white and a rosé, this exceptional cuvée, which rejuvenates over time, is the perfect embodiment of our quest for eternal freshness.
AN EXCEPTIONAL VISION OF CHAMPAGNE GENIUS
But first, there is a unique pre-condition: the formation of the bubbles.
Cristal Vinothèque excels at this crucial stage, specific to the Champagne region. By pushing back the boundaries of time through a prolonged ageing process, this wine personifies effervescence and persistence.
This time spent in the subterranean world, protected from the light, this world of silence, is the start of a new chapter for the wine. It is this time spent quietly ageing in the cellar that amplifies the wine's perfumes, continually building its aromatic intensity.
Forged by patience and rest, guided by the choices made by the cellar master, the wine slowly acquires a luster. The more time passes, the younger the wine becomes, the more the traces of the past fade away, allowing only the qualities of eternal youth to shine through.
BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES OF TIME
Cristal Vinothèque is Cristal's ultimate experience, its culmination and its highest accomplishment. At the end of a long meditation lasting two decades, combined with late disgorgement and fine-tuning to the point of perfect equilibrium, it emerges as a fresh perspective of champagne, an even more perfect and exciting vision.
