The newly born Cristal comes to us with a patient heart, full of promise. It has been shaped by time and by its unique chalky soils and is now ready for us to enjoy after ten years of ageing.

VINTAGE
The current vintage was a continental year, intense and hot, with scorching temperatures and weather which was a nimble succession of sunny and cool spells. Cristal is the embodiment of this concentration, intensity, energy and complexity.

PATIENCE
Time has worked its magic. Cristal is a giant with a patient heart. It is still brimming with youth, even after many long years spent resting in the cellars. The chalk has concentrated its texture and given it its unique energy and surprising depth. Its pure tension, opulence and remarkable persistence take it above and beyond any limits. It asserts its presence, flowing as sweetly as a mountain stream, yet structured by the strength and concentration of the vintage.

TERROIR
From the chalky depths, Cristal has forged its identity in these limestone soils which reflect the rays of the summer sun and capture the soft light of winter. Cristal has a restrained strength and a pervasive purity, like a lithe ballerina's impossibly graceful leap through the air. A reverberation of bright fruit, an initial pulse which penetrates to the core and beckons contemplation. The limestone gives the wine its beautifully firm body, chalky concentration, as well as an ethereal lightness and delicate tension.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
"The Cristal opens bright, super clear, fresh and pure on the exciting, absolutely fascinating nose with its fine, complex and elegant bouquet of gorgeously ripe and matured fruits, brioche and chalk expressions. This is the finest you can get from Champagne. The palate is pure, lean, fresh and filigreed but concentrated, highly complex, full of tension and enormously vibrant. This is a great vin de terroir, a dense and elegant Super-Cristal that goes straight and precise as a laser beam over the palate but also has texture in the form of sensually fleshy fruit. The dosage, however, is the lowest ever: just 7.5 grams. The endless and highly tensioned finish is complex, citrusy fresh, full of chalk and crystalline finesse. The Cristal is a vitalizing drug, "the Chevalier Montrachet of Champagne," as Jean-Baptise L?caillon puts it. It is the most exciting Champagne I have tasted thus far (May 2018)."
