Stunning acid line with creamy cheesy toasty flavours. Gorgeous wine.

Great depth to the fruit with sizzling acidity. Amazing material- built for aging but dazzling even now. Great fun now but super young

60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Aged 10 years on the yeast. Subtle and rich and the same time, with superb balance and length. Seems a shame to drink now.; best to wait 5-10 years.

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

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.

Bright, lively citrus galore. Lots of acidity and nuance... so much more complete and compelling than the delightful 09...balance, nuance, intensity... the wine is alive in the mouth shooting bright stars of lemon head sweet/sour notes all over. The longer it was open, the warmer it got... the more it charmed instead of assaulting the tastebuds. A glorious glass of French charm.

opened tonight, more orange than lemon, orchard fruits, very approachable and generous. Fine refined mousse, balanced, and long. A bit of a bitterness like stone fruit pit on the finish, but I find that that characteristic fades with time. A lovely champagne.
