    February 22, 2020 - Lemon nose with intense lemon zest palate with hints of brioche for the first hour or so. Needed time to open with more game notes emerging. Fine mousse. Lovely Krug seems still very young guven the power and acidity. 93-94 now with a lot of upside.

    January 31, 2020 - side by side tasting with the 167th edition.
    this being 2008 base and 167 being 2011 base vintage
    nose- nutty, marzipan
    mouth- quince, bitter pit fruit, grapefruit zest. there is a true vinosity here which is impressive, and overall i found this quite complex. each sip requires pondering over. cant say that for that many wines. the wine bounces all over the palate and lasts very long. it is a touch bitter which may bother some, but not me. My WOTN.

    December 11, 2019 - This blossoms as it warms and breathes. Initially served too cold; austere and tart. Once the ginger, dense citrus and orchard fruit, and warm pain complet aromas and tastes awakened, the tart acidity offered welcome tension. This is a momentous champagne; I need to decelerate the consumption of my dwindling stock.
