Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 1978

Anyone who says California wines don’t Age has never tasted anything like this. It was incredibly fresh and youthful. The color was bright and clear the nose was floral and inviting. The fruit was still alive and only slightly muted. Tannins were velvety smooth. — 21 days ago

Brut Champagne Rosé Blend

Takes time to open up with the initial nose and palate coming off a bit light in flavor. Once it does though it’s a very layered champagne of floral notes followed by a mix of cherries and raspberries. Never picked up the type of volume you get from its grande cuvée. — 9 days ago

@David T Raising my hand as a Rookie! Good info to learn! Krug NV was a huge disappointment to me.

@Dawn E. I’ve had good & bad bottles of N/V Krug. There is a 6 digit code on each bottle to check on Krug’s website to see when the bottle has received its cork. I found through experience this to be critical in choosing my bottles from resellers. Bottles that sit on retailers shelves or other in less than ideal storage conditions that are pushing three years or more are not to be purchased. Again, especially in 375ml’s. I look for resellers that store their a Krug in climate controlled storage and always check or ask about their disgorgement dates. Also, when a brand has received so much hype and developed such cache like Krug, unless it really hits your wheelhouse, there is room to be disappointed. Having said that, I like Krug when it’s good. However, they have pushed their price point past their quality over the last two years for me. I don’t buy their N/V Rosé anymore. On rare occasion, I will still buy their grande cuvees.

Vintage Brut Champagne Blend 2004

A caramel-glazed donut in a field of white flowers. Herbaceous flavors with so much mineralogy and acidity that belies the luscious, honeyed nose. Long, bitter finish. — 20 days ago

Grande Cuveé 167ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

From 375. Lemon oil, orchard fruit, pastry, mineral. I order 168ème but was sent this 167ème - a bit disappointed with the mistake, but this is still very good — 6 days ago
