The 1990 Cristal is a dramatic sweeping wine endowed with masses of apricots peaches flowers and minerals. A large-scaled Cristal the 1990 combines size with clarity and focus in a remarkably complete style that recalls the 1982. The wine remains generous on the palate with stunning length and a finish that lasts forever. The 1990 Cristal is 62% Pinot Noir 38% Chardonnay. Just a small portion of the wine (7-10%) underwent malolactic fermentation. This bottle was disgorged in late 2007 with 8 grams of dosage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2023. -AG

You won't soon forget this vivid and expressive Champagne. It packs in compound layers of citrus vanilla pear and nutmeg that harmonize and linger on the finish. Bright acidity makes it extra refreshing and layered... You won't soon forget this vivid and expressive Champagne. It packs in compound layers of citrus vanilla pear and nutmeg that harmonize and linger on the finish. Bright acidity makes it extra refreshing and layered. It has really opened up since last year...
