    (Krug) This vintage is notable for being only the second ever, after the 1981, where the blend is dominated by Chardonnay. A fine clarity here on inspection, more vibrant and shimmering than the slightly richer, more matt 1996. A touch sulphurous on the nose today though, although underneath this there is a roasted element, intertwined closely with coffee beans, with a floral-citrus character laid on top. The palate is fresh, breathtakingly clean and pure, with finely delineated flavours of pithy citrus fruits and coffee. Deep and minerally, with a firm and structured finish, crisp yet broad, it has a long, incisive, fresh and pure finish. The 1996 is without a doubt the greater wine, but this is perhaps more approachable now, and surely it will drink sooner? Overall, excellent wine.
