Wow, bright, citrus, mineral, Bosc pear, I think this was 99-100pts by someone. If I had to choose I prefer DP

Cause it's my job to drink wine. Sooo not unhappy about this one - fresh fresh fresh as a daisy! Beautifully precise (laser focused) acid, light wildflower honey on the nose... killer vintage... beaut now but will be even better in 5-10...

As stately as I expected it to be (can one really expect anything less of a wine as legendary as Cristal in one of Champagne's most celebrated vintages?) glinting pale gold, the color of a freshly-minted coin. The 2002 Champagne Cristal Brut Millésimé is imbued with soaring notes of pear and smoke, brioche and chalk. Disgorged in 2009, this is a precise wine—it has a sort of crystalline weightless density, with fruit buoyed by a fine mousse, and edgy saline-tinged minerality emerging at the close. 10 grams dosage. "You must be as precise as a Swiss watchmaker, I tell my team," our host, M. Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Chef de Caves at Roederer stressed. Precision in spades.
