Very rich, broad, mellow nose and then very much drier than expected on the palate. The palate suggests that the wine may have many years ahead of it, though the nose may always be more developed.

Vintage Krug is the yardstick against which all vintage Champagnes are measured. They began selling the '85 in 1994. These majestic wines always require long bottle storage, but the '85 was surprisingly accessible from the start, with its wonderful, elusive nose of smoke, cream, honey, nuts, peaches, and vanilla. The oak character doesn't stand out rather, it is the elegant, velvety soft fruit—particularly Pinot Meunier from Leuvrigny—that is noticeable. Very long aftertaste of vanilla. During the last year of the 1990s the wine hit a clear rut that it still hasn't recovered from. I'm not going to drink my bottles until 2010.

A seductive, fully mature, spicy-flavored Champagne that's rich in texture, full in body, still quite firm in balance and long on the finish. What a satisfying taste experience!
