Tasting Note: The 2004 Brut Cristal has put on quite a bit of weight since I first tasted it earlier this year. It is a powerful, structured Cristal layered with considerable fruit. Chardonnay seems to play the leading role in 2004, at least today. Cristal is often accessible young, but that is far from the case here. This is a serious, painfully young Cristal that will require considerable patience. Readers who are willing to spend some time with the wine today will find a super-impressive, complete Cristal. This is Lot L033331E100008, disgorged January, 2010. Drinking window: 2014 - 2034. Score - 97. (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Dec. 2010)
