    (Krug) Krug, meet Salon. The 1973 Krug was from an original bottling, and had that signature Krug vanilla cream sex appeal. Quite tasty, it was full of Wasa rye crisp wafer flavors. This was breed Champagnified and Krug all the way. So good and so tasty, the Krug was round and rich with vanilla wafer flavors as well

    (Krug) An original magnum of 1973 Krug was ‘dead on,’ as Big Boy put it. There was a lot of seashell and Fulton fish market at first, but that quickly blew off into the signature vanilla cream. The palate was apple cider meets rocket fuel with a razor’s edge of a finish. It had an endless silver streak in the mouth, zippedy doo dah day and den sum. There were good flavors of wood chip and almost a cinnamon without the spice. It was so zippy at first that it almost burned the tongue, although it did mellow nicely over time.

    (Krug) We started with a couple of bottles of 1973 Krug, original not Collection bottlings. Although one bottle was a touch more mature than the other, the fresher bottle had a nice nose of mature honey, dust, wheat, light white chocolate and touches of yeast and dirt. Round, smooth, honeyed and tender, the palate delivered more of a wine-like experience, although it still possessed a pinch of petillance. It got meatier in the nose with air, and its nice citric edges and white chocolate flavors made it easy to drink, but it seemed a bit more mature than it should have been, which was probably the bottle. It wasnt a bad bottle and was perfectly enjoyable, but probably not a perfect one either
