This harmonious Champagne offers luxurious texture and powerful, focused acidity, showing aromatic accents of spring blossom, crushed thyme and chai, with rich notes of lemon meringue, hazelnut, black currant and fresh porcini mushroom. The full package. Impressive. Drink now through 2028.
Incredibly fascinating to see how Krug despite their plentiful use of grapes from different sources manage to avoid a single oxidized grape this hazardous year. The wine is fantastically focused and has the unmistakable Krug stamp. Seductive softness right through the elegant and classic taste that sticks together like a well oiled Russian hockey team machine from the 70s. Somewhere between the 85, 95 and 96 in character.
