Antonio Galloni (Vinous) scored the 2007 vintage 97 points, praising its ‘extraordinary overall balance and remarkable finesse’.
At the time of writing, Cristal Rosé 2014 had not yet been scored by any major critics.
Prices for Cristal Rosé are 52% correlated to age, meaning they follow the traditional pricing pattern for fine wine whereby vintages appreciate in price with the passing of time. As such, buyers might hope that the latest release enters the market at a lower price than previous vintages.
