Suspect it will be a while before this wine hits it's straps fully. Couldn't resist trying some now and goodness me, it's loaded with flavour but missing some of the finesse that is currently present in the 2000.
That's not to say that the 02 isn't drinking well now. It has rich, deep, sweet notes like an understated 04 Bollinger LGA, but with that Krug subtlety. Somehow I think patience will be rewarded but who will be able to keep their hands off such a fine drop? — 5 months ago
Not going to pretend I have the palate or the language to describe the subtleties and nuances of flavours, bubbles, colour and texture to match what this wine presents. Did I want to do headstands because my tastebuds were struggling to keep up with all the different contrasts of flavour and other possibilities this wine was throwing at me? Absolutely. Would I recommend it? Totally. — 10 months ago
Actually a little disappointed with this rose. Perhaps overpowered by Bollingers austere dry Pinot style of champagne that didn't allow the fruit flavour to present. Not within a bulls roar of Krugs rose but then again neither is the price!
Won't be rushing out to buy more of this. The special cuvée? Certainly. — 6 months ago
2004 full of plum and dark fruit flavours. Enjoying alone on transit through Emirates First lounge in Dubai. They do put on some nice drops in here. — 9 months ago
Disg Jan 13. This fine drop has become more subtle over 6-8 months. It has developed a sherry like tang which is a big change from the 'in your face' apple flavour it had previously. Still enjoying the light golden green colour, long finish and persistent bead but wrestling with myself whether I am enjoying it more now or when it was younger. Tough call and a first world problem eh? — a year ago
