    September 27, 2021 - Fresh and lively with lemony citrus. Plenty of acidity but it's well-balanced with typical Krug richness and all delivered in a harmonious package. Really like this iteration of GC.

    September 11, 2021 - Onklers Blind BYO (Sindre): Nose with butter. Lots of butter. Some eucalyptus, and popcorn. Cinema. Round and harmonious taste. Lemon, ebb, and flow. The wine is long and has a finish with spices and bakery.

    August 29, 2021 - Base 2010 with a perpetual reserve ranging from 1998 to 2009.

    The nose is still very young with predominant apple and citrus fruits.

    The palate is always creamy of course, but the wine is much more vinous on the palate than on the nose, it's surprising! The juice is cut into a magnificent acidity, it is both airy but very present in the mouth, with an oxidative touch. Harmonious and slightly brioche at the end, the Chardonnay takes over at the end with a very stony length.

    Excellent, and at the table, it is not afraid of anything, the marriage with a spicy dish was particularly successful.

    July 21, 2021 - Very elegant. Apple and citrus nose, with a deeper layer of pinot complexity. Extremely balanced, wonderful mouthfeel. A champagne for the ages.

    July 13, 2021 - Given the release i was not expecting greatness but just a solid bottle. It delivered and more with great acidity and lemon curd. It had a wonderful freshness and verve making it a joy to drink. Still holding onto my 164's and 168's though. Those are still years away, lol.
