A very expansive nose. Succulent bright fruit with lemon, yeast, limestone. Really light and powerful with good length. Refreshing, zesty and delicious.

This is wonderful. Bright and fresh. A dazzling midpalate with Cristal sweetness, lemon, a steely drive. Powerful and beautifully balanced. Great stuff with decades ahead of it

This was fantastic; lemon, brioche, finesse and some richness. I haven’t had one in years and can only imagine how good the 2008 is - 2009

One of the greatest young Champagnes I’ve ever had and by far the finest Cristal. An epic wine. Can’t wait to see it in 10years. Power. Depth. Length. Texture is supple. Salty. Savory. Lemon rind. Has it all.
