Champagne Crucifix Grande Reserve Premier Cru Brut
Brut Champagne. Blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir aged for 4 years.
Availability: In stock
The Champagne Crucifix Grande Reserve Premier Cru Brut was crafted by Maison Crucifix Père et fils from a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, coming from estate-owned Premier Cru vineyards, 25 to 35 years of age, located in Montagne de Reims, in the Avenay-Val d'Or commune, in the heart of the AOC Champagne.
A non-vintage Champagne, 70% of Crucifix Grande Reserve Premier Cru Brut comes from the 2015 vintage. The rest is an assemblage of 6 different vintages.
After secondary fermentation was completed in the bottle, this Champagne Brut Grande Reserve was aged for 4 years in the cellar. Finally, it was disgorged about 4 months before hitting the market.
The non-vintage Champagne Crucifix Grande Reserve Premier Cru Brut is pale yellow, with some golden tinges.
Well-defined aromas of white flowers and fine lees, with hints of baked apples, French patisserie and dry fruit. This blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is quite seductive.
While displaying the elegance and flair that one expects from a good Champagne, this wine from Maison Crucifix Père et fils is also quite substantial. Bubbles are tiny and well integrated, and finish is long and persistent, leaving an aftertaste of fruit compote and a buttery note.
