Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung 2009


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! 97+/100


Suckling über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: A very rich and full-bodied Cristal that harks back to 2006 or 1989 in style. It's round and rich, which underlies the ripeness of the vintage. Lots of dried-apple and pineapple character with bread dough and flan flavors. The bubbles are so fine you almost don't notice them. Very vinous style. Drink now. 97/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Wine Enthusiast: The latest incarnation of this famous Champagne now comes from Roderer's own vineyards, a good portion of which are run on biodynamic lines. This still-young wine has great depth and richness, a beautiful balance between ripe fruit and crisp texture that make it alive, crisp and bright. As it matures, it will deepen and become even more intense. 97/100


Decanter über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Decanter: Translucent, shimmering gold indicates a wine of poised ripeness; beautiful scents of orange blossom merge with sense of great chalky terroir. The purity and sublime texture of the mouthfeel owes a lot to non-malolactic winemaking which maintains freshness after the uninterrupted warmth of summer to harvest end. Also it shows the essential true fruit now and for 20 years to come. Long lingering finish. A great supremely elegant Champagne. Dosage 8 g/l. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2009 Cristal is a beauty, with incredible richness as well as elegance, which are the hallmarks of this cuvée. Always a rough blend of 60/40 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from estate vineyards, it has a toasty, yet pure bouquet of stone fruits, rising bread, white flowers, and toasted bread, as well as a terrific sense of chalky minerality. While it’s not built around sheer richness and power (à la Krug), it’s perfectly balanced, has a fine, fine mousse, and shines for its class and purity. Bravo! It’s going to keep for another two decades. 97/100


Jancis Robinson über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Jancis Robinson: Tense and lifted on the nose. So very different from the vintage: much more finesse. Racy and elegant. Masses of acidity and tension. Lighter in texture than the vintage. A racy thoroughbred. So refined but very youthful. 19/20


Winespectator über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Winespectator: White peach and acacia blossom aromas accent the flavors of poached apple, gingersnap biscuit, pastry cream and spun honey in this harmonious Champagne. The satiny mousse caresses the palate, while firm, focused acidity drives the lasting finish. Drink now through 2030. 95/100


Falstaff über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Falstaff: Helles Goldgelb, Silberreflexe, zartperliges Mousseux. Mit etwas Brioche unterlegte feine gelbe Apfelfrucht, unterlegt von Nuancen von Limetten und Orangenblüten, facettenreiches, mineralisches Bukett. Straff, sehr puristisch, weiße Kernobstnuancen, lebendig strukturiert, elegant, zeigt im Finale eine dezente Fruchtsüße, exzellente Länge, sicheres Reifepotenzial. 95/100


International Wine Report über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- International Wine Report: The 2009 'Cristal' is a completely stunning Champagne which impresses with its polish, complexity, weight and silky mousse. This is intense, yet refined and offers striking aromatics of green papaya, biscuit, tangerine rind and Meyer lemon accents. There are rich flavors of lemon rind, Bartlett pear, kumquat, brioche and Gravenstein apple. The gorgeous, silky texture and rich, polished mouthfeel contribute to an absolutely awesome drinking experience. Overall this is a simply gorgeous bottle of Champagne, which looks to have exceedingly long aging potential. 95/100


Galloni über: Champagne Cristal Flaschengärung

-- Galloni: The 2009 Cristal literally shimmers on the palate, showing great depth and purity in its sumptuous layers of fruit. It is a magnificent wine endowed with superb length and exceptional overall balance. The 2009 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The percentage of wine aged in oak is 15%, which is down slightly from previous vintages. 94-96/100
