    April 23, 2021 - Krug 1995
    Frukten er nesten helt borte.
    Denne blir for skrinn.
    Syra kjennes ut som en slank 96.
    Ikke optimal flaske.

    March 15, 2021 - Slight oxidative note on the nose, with toasted hazelnut. Beautiful peach and red apples on the palate, with a touch of minerality. Lively acidity, with tons of energy. Great way to finish off a meal.

    March 13, 2021 - Drinking so damn well. Tons of hazelnut, some bruised apple, and orchard fruit. Tons of energy and precision. Super dense and full of flavor. Would not hesitate to buy again.

    March 12, 2021 - Celebrated a business milestone with a 1.5L. This was brawny and delicious. Modest oxidation for 26 years old, but very “Krug’esque,” in profile. Compared to a recent 750 bottle of ‘96 vintage, I found this personally much more generous on the schnozz and gums than the ‘96. ‘95 is far more developed. I’m happy to be able to have such a beautiful wine with my friends and family on a special night.

    February 10, 2021 - A nose of rare richness, cocoa, then on nuts and dried fruits. Once well aerated, this wine offers great complexity.

    The mouth reveals itself, as always with Krug, with a magnificent touch. Smooth, creamy, concentrated, it's silk. At first almost shy, it hatches over time, and it's impressive.

    Very, very good length with a powerful finish.
