Product Description
Details

Produced from Premier Cru vineyards located in  Montagne de Reims, in the Avenay-Val d'Or commune, Crucifix Prestige Premier Cru is arguably the best-known Champagne of Maison Crucifix Père et fils.

An equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this non-vintage Champagne is produced from estate-owned vineyards, 35 years old on average, grown in clay-limestone soils.

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks, after which 20% of the Chardonnay must was aged in 200-litre barrels for some months. After that, Crucifix Prestige Premier Cru was aged for 4 years with its lees in the bottle. It was disgorged 4 months before hitting the market.

This refined Champagne Premier Cru Champagne makes for a nice after-work drink.

Appearance

Clean and bright, the Champagne Crucifix Prestige Premier Cru is pale yellow, with some golden tinges.

Nose

Rather intense, this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir conveys some intriguing aromas of acacia flowers, together with remembrances of ripe apples, pastry and smoke.

Palate

Smooth-bodied and engagingly fresh, this non-vintage Champagne from Crucifix Père et fils has some palate-caressing bubbles and an excellent balance. White fruit and sweet spices, with an aftertaste of flowers and a buttery note.

Our personal opinion

An excellent value, Crucifix Prestige Premier Cru is both fruit-driven and subtly mineral.
