    October 17, 2021 - Last night we drank this mag. I was surprised how open and round this tasted, with some of the chisel and definition I have liked about the 2009 seemingly gone in this bottle. While the wine was good, I was disappointed that it didn't show as I would have liked, especially from mag. I have one 750 left, I will drink it in the next 6 months or so.

    August 28, 2021 - Weekend in Westport; 8/25/2021-8/29/2021 (Westport, CT): Still young and primary but Cristal is pretty much always good and while it gets better with time you can still tell the quality even when it's young.

    July 23, 2021 - Once again from a lovely magnum, effortlessly elegant and simply delicious. Add to it the star factor associated with this wine and this makes for one of the best celebration starters.
    Well round as always, bright and energetic, soft rich feel but the world elegance is what we will take away from this ( like last time) experience.
