Yeah the first offer I got for Cristal 08 was the cheapest, 199 at Vins rare, should’ve bought more.
for some reason the Ralphs next to me has had 08 cristal for $199 at least 4 times in the past 6 months.. as part of their buy 6 special. BUT they only ever stock 4 at a time. So i gotta buy 2 bottles of $3 cabernet as filler

When is the expected arrival on these? The proposed sparkling wine tariffs might be a problem.
My worry as well. All I had ever heard was "sometime in 2020" and I heard that over a year ago.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

They told me Spring 2020 when I asked about estimated delivery.

I know Taittinger can do no wrong but has anyone tried this one yet? I haven't tried a single '08 Blanc de Blanc anything. Or '09 for that matter.

I tried the 08 Comtes with Pierre Emmanuel a few years back. It was the best young Comtes I’ve had
