Vinous 97+ JS 95 WS 94 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "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."
According to James Suckling - "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."
According to Wine Spectator - "Shows lovely texture and harmony, with a powerful backbone of acidity married to finely knit flavors of green pear and raspberry fruit. Drink now through 2030."
