(LLLLPK 00178): Bright gold. Ripe orchard fruits, peach pit, toffee, marzipan and dried flowers on the pungent, smoky nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering palate-staining pit fruit nectar, apple pie and brioche flavors, enhanced by a toffeed quality. Closes spicy and very long, with resonating smoke and toasted hazlenut qualities.

Enormously fascinating to see how Krug has succeeded in avoiding a single oxidated grape this risky year, despite their extensive procuration of grapes from different sources. This wine is fantastically focused and unmistakeably stamped with the Krug trademark. Seductively mellow right through the elegant, classical flavour that is as united as a well-trimmed Russian machine team from the 70s. Somewhere between 89, 95 and 96 in character.

This harmonious Champagne offers luxurious texture, aromatic accents of spring blossom, crushed thyme and chai, powerful, focused acidity and rich notes of lemon meringue, hazelnut, black currant and fresh porcini mushroom. The full package. Impressive.

Tasting at the office of Krug in Reims with Mr.Olivier Krug. Light gold in color. Medium legs. Raspberry, Apricot, Mushroom, Mineral, Biscuity, Hazelnut, Honey.Something like heavy notes as usual. Full bodied. Silky texture. Long finish. Lacking "finess". Honestly to say, I've been feeling something odd since the label was changed. I always feel nothing but the heaviness By the way, Olivier said "we always blend the wines of Grand Cru, 1er Cru and Village."
