2009 was a perfect year weather-wise allowing the vines to flourish arriving in the winery in perfect condition. whilst contributing fresh minerality, citrus scents and hazelnuts to the wine, whilst the Pinot brings complimentary notes of yellow peach.
Anton Gallon described the 2009 as: Rich, radiant and totally seductive, the 2009 Cristal possesses remarkable depth and striking purity. I have often felt that Cristal is released too young, but that is not at all the case with the 2009, a Champagne that is absolutely glorious today. The ripeness of the vintage comes through in spades in the wine's luxurious, enveloping personality. I remember tasting the vins clairs and the Cristal blend back in the spring of 2010. The finished wine is every bit as alluring as those early tastings suggested it would be.The 2009 is a superb Cristal in the making. A master class from the very top name in Champagne.
