    January 19, 2022 - 24eme (2012 base) from 375ml. This really needed some air and warmer temperatures to shine. There’s a lovely red berry note on the nose along with brioche, a bit of yeast, grapefruit, and almonds. Great acidity with complex flavors of more berries and citrus on the palate. Long, mineral driven finish. Really great wine, but even from 375ml it still tastes young.

    December 18, 2021 - First release apparently. Hue is more straight than rose but there's a more serious vinous element than typical sparkler.

    December 12, 2021 - From 750mL, purchased in 99 and we couldn’t quite figure out the bottle code online, but likely base vintage in the early 90s. Barely copper in the glass, I think one could miss that this were a rosé if not being too careful. Plenty of gas on the pop, but pretty evolved. Lots of blood orange, sort of a fino sherry note, some red apple skin, hints of salinity and iodine and and intense honey. Deep and vibrant, what a treat!

    December 5, 2021 - Had an unpleasant oxidized taste. Almost sherry-like.

    November 16, 2021 - Unfortunately the bottle was thrown away before we could take a note of the Krug ID...
    In any case an impressive and elegant wine, soft, light fruity and soft smoky edge. Not confectionery at all and albeit a touch heavy at times was very bright and carried the richness well. Very pretty wine just annoyed we do not have any data on it.. 93+
