    September 23, 2020 - Biscuit, toast, grapefruit, almond, nutty. High acidity and long finish. Have to breath in glass for 30min for it to evolve.

    September 12, 2020 - Oddly, this young wine was best quite cold when first poured. Beautiful bead and couronne. Exceptionally elegant fragrance and palate. Lightly bready, lightly citric, medium light weight, hint of ginger. It’s obviously in its formative years and based on the harmony, it will blossom into yet another outstanding vintage Krug. Buy now, drink later.

    September 9, 2020 - Oh my. This was simply stupendous. Lovely red and white fruits with the latter dominant. Loved the acid, the mouthfeel, the minerality and the sheer persistence of this. Better than the 96 and the 02..

    August 11, 2020 - Notes of crushed seashell, cut apple; with air scents of toasted brioche. Quite crisp, structured, and tightly coiled, but with undeniable potential. Great depth and balance; perfectly delineated on the long finish. The '04 Krug evolved and improved considerably over the course of dinner (2 hours) which bodes well for long-term ageing. Should be chasing perfection circa 2030!
