This elegant version shows beautiful texture and a sense of finesse despite the underlying power of vibrant acidity and smoky minerality. The palate offers a finely layered mesh of blackberry, poached pear, almond pastry, lemon zest and pickled ginger flavors. Drink now through 2028.

Light bright gold. Heady mineral- and smoke-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas with notes of fig toasted nuts and sweet butter adding complexity and depth. Powerful palate-staining poached pear and orange flavors are given spine by a smoky mineral quality picking up floral and spicecake notes with air. Rich but lively and precise finishing with superb clarity power and spicy persistence. Drinking this Champagne now would be a shame given this cuvee s track record for aging. Step

Although it is still young, this vintage of Cristal promises great things. There’s an impressive balance between ripe fruit and crisp acidity, rich and food friendly, but also a fine apéritif. Apricot and grapefruit flavors are round and rich, but with considerable minerality as well. This is a beautiful wine that can improve with age, at least through 2030.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Broad, ample and resonant on the palate, the 2006 Cristal dazzles with its pure richness and volume. Readers need to give the 2006 another 4-5 years in bottle, perhaps longer, as the wine appears to be shutting down a bit. Tasted next to the 2002, today the 2006 is a bit less opulent but just as intense, layered and deep. This is a fabulous showing. 10,000 cases imported in the US...97" AG 05/14 "Cellar Selection: Although it is still young, this vintage of Cristal promises great things.
