    October 17, 2020 - An off bottle similar notes but a bitter note carried through from the beginning. Still good but not great.

    October 11, 2020 - Not blind, base 2006
    Together with cdm and vintage 2006. The most complex one in nose and palate but with the least precision and density. Some honey and nut notes, I would drink it over the next 5-7 years. 94

    September 20, 2020 - This is just yummy stuff. While maybe not the most powerful or complex Krug, it is excellent juice. No new notes but make sure to drink at a cooler temp (touch warmer than cellar, too cold and you don’t get it’s full beauty) with enough time to open up and showcase its full profile. Great bubbles.

    September 19, 2020 - This got better over 2 hours open. Recommend 1 hour open. Very rich, mature, leesy, and oxidative nose. After open for a while gained depth, rich sweet fruit, with honey, and nutty taste. As always, a fantastic MV.

    September 5, 2020 - Similar to April 18 but with a bit more Meyer lemon. Love me some Krug. Why drink other champagne?
