    February 20, 2016 - Nose: Faint scent. Slightly nutty with lemon and hints of caramel.

    Taste: A tofee wraped taste sensation followed by lemon and nut. The aftertaste get stronger notes of lemon, faint touch of bread and even pears.

    Comment: A fantastic Cristal. One of the best vintages I drank. Highly recommended.

    February 14, 2016 - Some serious pucker factor cold, but softens appropriately as it approaches proper drinking temperature. Apple, pear, toast, citrus, hint of pineapple?. REALLY Long. Plenty of life still, methinks.

    October 9, 2015 - Deep color. The nose shows aromas of toast, brioche, minerals, apple blossom, red berries and a hint of flowers. This is medium bodied on the palate, with excellent concentration and tremendous finesse. Powerful. The long finish features a serious mineral tinge.

    October 4, 2015 - Grønne epler, og en litt forstyrrende gummiaktig duft.
    Meget bra intensitet og matchende friskhet.
    Men det hele er noe knytt.
    Altfor ung, og endel bitterstoffer i finish.
    Glem i 15 år.
    Tipper det finnes bedre flasker der ute.
    89-90p.

    April 19, 2015 - Some Champagnes: Even thought this is still mainly lemonade, it is beginning to reveal its greatness. Minerals, very structured for 2000.
