Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung 2007


Lobenberg: Der Cristal zeigt wie immer im Bouquet feine Röstnoten, die an kräftig getoastetes Brioche erinnern, auch Mandeln, etwas Waldhonig und reifer Apfel. Am Gaumen zeigt sich knackige Williamsbirne, viel Aprikose und eine dekadent cremige Art. Unglaublich charmant, etwas kräftiger in der Perlage. Das steht dem Cristal mit Flaschenreife ideal. Ein großartiger Champagner und verdiente Prestigecuvée! 98+/100


Suckling über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: Aromas of ginger, sliced dried pineapple, mango and tea. Full-bodied, dense and intense. Really fresh and delicious. Tangy acidity. Very long and flavorful finish. A vibrant and delicious Cristal. Hard to decide if this is better than or the same as 2005. Drink or hold. 96/100


Parker über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Parker: Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon calls Cristal 'the first terroir cuvée of the Champagne.' He furthers, 'It’s not just Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, but the chalk that brings the ultimate finesse, length and precision of Cristal.' Forty-five blocks with averaging age of 43-years-old, low-yielding vines form the base of Cristal, which is usually made of approximately 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. Due to an early bud break (end of March) and the wet summer, the 2007 was picked at the end of August, so almost 100 days after the flowering instead of the normal 93-95 days. There is a bit less Pinot Noir than usual (57%) and accordingly, more Chardonnay (43%) in the 2007 Cristal. This Champagne comes along in a golden color and with a deep and matured, yet well-defined bouquet of ripe yellow fruits and honey notes. Full-bodied, round and very complex, the generous 2007 is a perfect mix of ripe fruit and precise minerality. It is a silky textured, pure and precise, as well as powerful and expressive Champagne. It has great tension and grip in the very long and persistent finish. Great expression of chalk. The 2007 was disgorged in 2015. The 2009 is to be released in September; the 2008 won't be in the market earlier than January 2018. Neither a 2010 nor a 2011 will be released, but a 2012. 95/100
