This shows a rich nose featuring deep and ripe Chardonnay and Pinot Noir: Red fruits, some dark mushrooms, plenty of grilled nuts, caramel, some deep spices, dried citrus, lemon peel and bready aromas are all on offer. The trademark complexity is here too, and this freshens with air. The palate is intricately detailed and stitched together like needlework. It's very precise, very even, and the acidity is articulated with some finesse, even if this has much more in terms of phenolics as the leading structural component. The phenolics are rich and ripe, and they sit polished and even around immensely concentrated fruits such as peaches, nectarines and white cherries. The finish is deep, even and resonant. Drink now but rest assured that this will hold for a very long time – just like Krug has proven in other warm years such as '76. Krug ID 115023.
James Suckling
Like taffeta in texture, this harmonious Champagne is finely honed and fresh. A wonderfully expressive version, with ample spice and graphite accents to the blackberry pâte de fruit, coffee liqueur, dried apricot, singed orange peel and crystallized honey notes. Hard to stop sipping. Disgorged spring 2014. Drink now through 2028. –AN

Krug

Krug

Unarguably the most prestigious of all the great Champagne houses, Krug produces the most sought after wines in the world. While the multi-national high-quality goods conglomerate, LVMH bought Krug in 1999, several family members have remained on the board. Six generations later, the house continues in the legacy of founder Joseph Krug with Olivier Krug, representing the family name since 2009. In order to preserve their passion and unique savoir-faire style, the house has chosen to limit their production to guarantee the unparalleled quality of their wines. These are truly exceptional Champagnes, made from hand-selected plots, artfully blended by Krug’s Chef de Caves, Eric Lebel and the Tasting Committee, their wines are then developed at a slow pace creating impressive and structured blends. They were the first to use the term “multi-vintage” rather than “non-vintage” to describe their Grand Cuvée. This exclusive blend is made from at least ten different vintages and aged for more than six years on the lees before being blended to produce the house style. The House of Krug also produces a rare small single-vineyard wine, Clos de Mesnil, as well as a very fine Rosé. ...

Champagne

There is no drink quite as festive as Champagne. Sparkling wine was first produced within its three main towns – Reims, its largest and home to the Montagne de Reims, famed for its Pinot Noir; Epernay, the capital of the Côte des Blancs, the area most renowned for its Chardonnay; and Ay, the town situated on the border of both the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Less expensive Champagnes are often produced in the more southern area of Côte de Sézanne and the Côte des Bar. The industrialisation of Champagne was developed by the widow (veuve) Clicquot in the 19th century. But it was carried through by other Houses, such as Bollinger, Krug and Moët & Chandon. While large Houses still dominate Champagne’s wine scene, in recent years there have been a plethora of smaller producers, known as “grower Champagnes” that have popped up. Instead of selling their grapes to negociants, they produce their own sparkling wines – a system that reflects other regions such as Burgundy. Some of the best grower Champagnes include Anselme Selosse and Cédric Bouchard. ...
