Majestic. Superb. Smooth, bold, slightly fruity, slight oakiness, vanilla. Delightful. Must buy again. — 4 days ago
First open, used Coravin on night one. Cotton candy first hit on the nose. Blows off and you get more melon. On the palette, oak, butter, then acidity hits. Too much going on to really enjoy the wine. On night two, much more mellow and enjoyable. More of the oak/butter style while I prefer something closer to Mayacamas/Mount Eden — a month ago
It’s Miller time. Well…actually Billecart time. I like this more than I buy it. One of good cuvées easily found in 375ml.
The body creamy, layered, nice c02, bruised golden & green apple, ripe Bosc pear, pineapple flesh, tropical melons-mango driven, lime & lemon zest, cream soda, cream, white spice-ginger, bread, yeast, brioche, soft but grainy moist chalkiness, sea spray/fossils, slightly chard sourdough toast, wet/softened alluvial, limestone, wet river stone, notes of flintiness, yellow lilies, white orchids, fruit blossoms, jasmine, rainfall acidity, excellent balanced fruit & earth, tension, structure with a juicy two-minute polished finish that falls onto beautiful minerality.
BTW, home grown tomatoes with Companion Bakery wheat sourdough, lightly toasted w/ olive oil, burrata, Tondo balsamic (stunning), olive oil & fresh basil never gets old. — 2 months ago
Majestic. Buttery, stone fruits, smooth. Very enjoyable but flavoursome Chardonnay - would buy again — 21 days ago
Hope I’ve selected the correct wine.
Birthday celebration for my soulmate. Cristal always delivers.
Coming up to room temp. Warm bread notes on the nose and palate. Balance personified on the mid palate. Soft bubbles combine with apples and mild peach. Grossly understated. Love it… — a month ago

Gold color with subtle cloudiness. White Burgundy nose - butter, camomile, oak, and a touch of minerality. Similar on the palate with above average depth and thickness. Just my style. A little more reserved and less refined than previous bottles. — a month ago
