Tasting Notes

Still incredibly youthful and primary, the 1999 Cristal Rosé offers plenty of power, but it is clearly much less refined than the other wines in this tasting, tough company, it must be admitted. Still, the 1999 looks like it will drink well for many years even if it is a bit compact and rough around the edges next to the other wines in the range. With time in the glass, hints of game, smoke and wild flowers with distinctly Pinot-leaning inflections add character.
