"An intense, concentrated bouquet of yellow fruit combined with a concentrated roasted hazelnut and almond aromas. A perfect, seamless and complex marriage of almond, wheat and sweet pollen notes from the Chardonnay with the juicy red fruit of the Pinot Noir.
Concentrated, energetic and vibrant on the palate, starting out as a silky, almost oily caress, with soft flavours of candied citrus and iodised spices. The powdery texture becomes tauter and the pure, precise and chiselled freshness crescendos. The salivating finish is underpinned by a slightly oaky, sappy and saline note that creates a simultaneous sensation of delicacy and concentration."
Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Chef de Cave

What the critics say:

98/100Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

"The 2015 Cristal is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. No malo-lactic was employed, and 25% wine was aged in oak. The dosage is 7 grams per liter. An exquisitely delicate yet complex perfume of clover honey, freshly shaved ginger, marzipan, and jasmine slowly emerges from the nose, giving way to a core of pear tart, persimmons, and apple butter. The palate is an exercise in finesse, featuring very fine bubbles and fantastic intensity with a myriad of spice and floral nuances, finishing with impressive persistence and jaw-dropping poise. This is a style for those that embrace purity, soft-spoken expression, and impeccable crafting. It won't disappoint those who love Champagne in its initial youthful perfume flushes, yet will undoubtedly reward the patient with a richer, toastier, more obvious and opulent style with 5-10 years+ of cellaring."

98/100Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

"From vineyards that are run organically, this iconic Champagne's latest iteration is as beautiful as ever. Textured, with a mineral undertow, the wine is just beginning to soften and show a balanced maturity. Drink this great wine now."
