    December 31, 2019 - Beautiful burnished gold. Pure class. Rich, creamy; power and elegance; the pinnacle of the art of blending.

  • LTTC Likes this wine: 92 points

    December 16, 2019 - (TFWE) drank from a magnum. A beautiful nose of white flower, toast, cream, yeast, nougat and hint of apple. Fresh and powerful on the palate with an acidic, long finish. I'm falling in love with Champagne because of Dom and Krug. Drinking well now. 92+

    Blend: 1990 - 2007(73%)
    37% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 31% Meunier

    December 14, 2019 - Complex aromatics of grilled nuts, toast, truffle and orchard fruits. It is full, rich, creamy and powerful. There’s good underlying structure and plenty of authority to the long finish.

    October 3, 2019 - These last three bottles of the 163rd edition have been a little ugly. I didn't really enjoy a single bottle. They were harsh, and a little metallic, and slightly off putting. My storage was perfect...
