Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 95 points

    December 25, 2012 - Abbreviated notes on my wife's 40th. Just one of those nights. Nose: Tawny port, butter, caramel, hazelnut, quince, and caramelized apples. Palate:Golden apples, smoke on the attack. Tons of citrus-laced, salty acidity on the mid-palate. Roasted hazelnuts, lemons, and toast on the lengthy finish.

    I only bought this because of a very generous Total Wine gift cert, but let me say this. The hype is justified. Never have I had a champagne that delivered as much richness and complexity as this NV Krug. I am a believer at this point.

Krug sells more of this than any other champed, so it is in their best interest to make it the best possible. This MV blend does have the ability to age much longer than I originally believed when I bought a magnum. I drank 2 750's over the last 3 years and they were much too young. Still, even in youth this is good stuff.
