93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very strong mousse. Deep, yeasty aromas dominated by toffee, butterscotch and toast. Quite powerful but already harmonious, with real thickness of flavor and oily extract leavened by ripe acidity. Very fresh in the mouth, with very ripe hints of yellow fruits and strawberry complicated by leesy and toasty flavors in the background. A large-scaled, extremely backward wine that should develop for a decade or two in bottle. This is looking like a great vintage for both Cristal Brut and Rose. 93(+?) points. (ST)  (11/2001)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Great refinement shows in the subtle hazelnut, fruit, hay and vanilla aromas of this famous luxury cuvée. The palate is flavorful with lovely dry grape, peaches and cream, toasted nut, plum and flavors, and the mouthfeel is soft, lightly and gently frothy. Finishes long and leaner, but not hard, with mineral and citrus notes.  (12/2001)

Jancis Robinson

 Very tiny bead. Quite big, broad and toasty. Finishes very dry after a substantial, full bodied palate. A pretty massive champagne though with no suggestion of sweetness. Considerable evolution but it still has something to give too. Very 'serious'. 18.5/20 points. (JR)  (6/2012)
