"The 2007 Cristal Brut has a golden hue with slightly orange-colored and warm highlights. It has impeccable, fine, regular, and dynamic bubbles. The attack of juicy ripe fruits (Pear Williams) and slightly acid red fruits (redcurrants) combined with nuances of hot pastries and Tarte Tatin that have just been taken out of the oven. This juxtaposition of aromas of ripe, acid, and sweet fruits with the more roasted notes resulting from aging becomes more pronounced over time and produces a real impression of depth. The textures are silky, velvety, and almost luscious; they provide perfect overtones to the wine's freshness in a luscious and sensual ensemble. Powdery and salty nuances stimulate the edges of the tongue, adding a precise and energetic quality. And the final phase of the tasting is predominantly an impression of refinement and lightness." —winemaker

Blend: 58% Pinot Noir, 42% Chardonnay
"Long-time Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon has produced yet another in a string of superb Champagnes with the 2007 Cristal. Rich, powerful and enveloping, the 2007 takes hold of all the senses and never lets up. The aromatics alone are captivating, but then the wine opens on the palate, revealing layer after layer of flavor to match a multi-dimensional, kaleidoscopic personality that will leave Champagne lovers weak at the knees. The 2007 is 58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir, which is to say a bit more Chardonnay-leaning than is the norm. The 2007 is striking today, but it should also age effortlessly for several decades. It is also without question one of the very finest new releases of the year. Drinking window: 2015-2037." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Aromas of ginger, sliced dried pineapple, mango and tea. Lightly yeasty. Full body, dense and intense. Very fresh and flavorful. Tangy acidity. Very long finish. A vibrant and delicious Cristal. This is clearly not the 2006 but clearly fantastic quality. Drink or hold." —James Suckling
