Tasting Notes

Vinous – 97/100

The 2006 Cristal is a rich, explosive wine that captures all of the natural radiance of this warm year. Ample and full-bodied, the 2006 is one of the more extroverted recent Cristals. As such, it will drink well now, even though it has more than enough body to drink well for another 20 years or more. This shows real density and tons of character. It s a big wine. In retrospect, we might have preferred a lower dosage, but the wine was quite difficult to balance in blending, so we had to go for a higher dosage, Lecaillon adds. Dosage is 9 grams per liter. Disgorged: 2014. [Antonio Galloni, 06/12/2023]

JancisRobinson.com – 18.5

Jeroboam. Very limited production. Disgorged in 2016, dosage 9 g/l. 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. 20% of the cuvee is fermented in oak. Five years spent on the lees. Very mature nose with a hint of lime. Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon suggests it smells like a great Meursault. A real throat warmer. You could easily take these three 2006s for three quite different wines. Long. Tastes sweeter than the other two. And something slightly metallic. Saline finish. [18/11/2021]

Robert Parker – 95

The 2006 Cristal shows rich and ripe (tropical) fruit on the nose along with delicate brioche notes. Round and textured on the palate, this is a generous but fresh, fine and salty Cristal with a very long and greatly finessed finish. Tasted in New York, November 2018.

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050
