    October 24, 2020 - beautifully matured Krug. Still good tension and acidity, bubbles, but more complexity now and a hint of oxidation in a good way.

    October 7, 2020 - Ripe vintage but nicely balanced with high yields. Yeast, pear and wonderful mousse. Firm acidity and fine bead with no specious sweetness. A classic.

    October 7, 2020 - Best of the bottles I've had. So incredibly fresh, tremendous energy, concentrated citrus acid, subtle sweetness, oyster-like salinity, just amazing. Plain at first but deep in disguise. 94-95

    September 30, 2020 - Full, but still with good cut across the palate. 92-93

    September 17, 2020 - Very fine showing, complete and mature with coffee, brioche, heavy flavors, yet with a vibrant acidity and a very lively mousse that keeps everything in place. A night cap for grown ups ...

    (Krug Champagne Vintage Brut) Medium golden color; mature, hazelnut, cream, brioche, kumquat nose; mature, tart citrus, hazelnut, baked lemon, mineral, tart kumquat, marzipan palate with stunning acidity; long bright finish (looks and smells more like a Champagne from the early '80s, but the palate and acidity are age appropriate)
