I must say that both my wife and I were quite unimpressed with Cristal. Dom Perignon has never let us down, but Cristal simply was not as smooth, flavorful, or enjoyable. Frankly, we prefer many lower-priced bottles than Dom to Cristal, which was, surprisingly, a severe disappointment that definitely did not live up to the tremendous hype.

Firm and tightly wound this seems more like a 96 than a 95 without the superripe fruit. Spice citrus and berry aromas and flavors permeate the refined texture. Crisp finish. Austere but has length. Drink now through 2008. 1 400 cases made. BS Wine Spectator.

The palate is flavorful with lovely dry grape, peaches and cream, toasted nut, plum and flavors, and the mouthfeel is soft, lightly and gently f... Wine Enthusiast.

Winemaker's Notes:

Yellow appearance with burnished gold reflections. Intense nose of white flowers, citrus and red berries, followed by warmer whiffs of toast and wood. On the palate , ripe lush fruits (vine peaches) and toasty flavours. Dense, fleshy structure. Powerful finish.
