  • näsan: rökig, kex, väldigt sluten till en början, kaffe och rostade fat kommer efter en stund i glaset, även bränt gummi och röda vingummi. Gröna äpplen och en aning mint.
    Vinet är på tok för ungt och behöver nog mycket tid för att öppna upp på riktigt och ge ifrån sig det man förväntar sig 94-96+ kommer troligen bli mycket bättre med tiden.

  • Complex and nuanced nose displaying lovely white flowers, white stonefruits, tropical fruit mix, rubber, smoke, toasted bread, yeast and some pepper.
    Intriguing mix of scents.
    On the palate this lovely Cristal have a firm mousse, high and fresh piercing acidity, sweet green apples, creamy fat stonefruits, bread, butter, fat chalky minerals, some sweetness mixed with a touch of bitterness on the long and complex finish.
    Very, very good Champagne.
    Has developed allot since last bottle I had, not to mention the first one, about 2 years ago.
    Still young, lovely right now, and with a very bright future ahead.
    Worldclass stuff!

  • Champagne: Deg. fine/2012. Crema di limone, ostriche, prato falciato, roccia bianca, muschio fresco, buccia di agrume, affilato, raffinato, pulito. perfettamente coerente con il naso con il finale di una bell'ostrica. Da assaggiare tra qualche anno, lunghezza e volume encomiabile
