Vintage Brut Champagne Blend 2004

At the Come Taste the Stars Dinner hosted by Tyson Stelzer. The 6 th and final Champagne and what better way to finish than with the power of a Vintage Krug. 39% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 24% Pinot Meunière ; aged more than 11 years on Lees. This is one of the rare vintages of Krug to have more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir. Malic acid to the fore with crunchy green Apple notes. Tastes amazingly young and fresh - aiming for a long living style. Noticeable acidity finishing very dry. Tyson says at 15 years of age that it needs another 15 to reach its full potential. The French Somm at Montrachet told me this was his favourite of the 6 stellar champagnes. Powerful but retains its elegance incredibly. — 3 days ago

Brut Champagne Blend 1995

I liked this better than the others at the party. Extremely closed. I expected that. It was clearly tight. I have hopes. Last year I had a discussion with Olivier Krug who loves this and thinks it’s better than 1996 I am not there, but may well be in 15 years. — 3 days ago

Grande Cuveé 164ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

A wonderful open nose. Composed lean lemon with a steely backbone, chalk. This is young but so splendid and dazzling now. I should wait, but this is spectacular now. All that flinty sharp structure but amazing fruit — 10 days ago

The 06 is out very soon. I’d imagine the 08 will be a while... save time for your own fanfare

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.

This is the 2011 vintage base. Not surprised due to how young it is, but there was very little notes of their typical slightly oxidative style. Yeasty, but more honeyed. Hint of toffee, caramelized green apple and nice layers.

Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

2001 vintage? Please. Only Krug could produce a wine this good from such a bad vintage. It has massive strength, minerality, a finish that dances on your palate. Tastes 20 years younger. You almost forget how wimpy the mousse is. — 3 days ago

Grande Cuvée Brut Reims Champagne Blend

What do you do when the French white burg is bad? Open whatever else is in the cooler: a baby Krug! Delicious scents of almonds, honey and brûlée. The finest of bubbles present toasted brioche, hazelnut and nougat. Amazing! — 15 days ago

@Conrad Green I agree, great stuff. And still a baby. Can’t wait to see how this develops.
