Sometimes you visit friends at restaurants and sometime STUPID people leave behind some Krug (morons) and you friend gives you a sip of their discarded magic. So...everything. I forever love Krug. Dunno if I love it or Dom Ruinart better I guess it depends on the style I desire. — 5 days ago
Orange-pink. Fresh red fruit, raspberries and bramble, cherry pie, it feels like a walking through a berry patch with some honey and pepper. Then the bread comes through, really a nuanced aeromatic nose. Requires at least an hour open though. The structure of this wine is what denotes its price point. In a word, perfect. The attack is soft and light, with subtle berry noted. The mid builds to this huge full lemon juice (feels like grand cuvee) with berries squeezed in. The acid is not huge but completely in balance. The finish lasts seemingly for minutes. It’s sugared cranberry. Wow. — a month ago
Very well balanced. Good fruit. We enjoyed it with barbecued Salmon. Better suited to a lighter white-fleshed fish. — 13 days ago

Sweet at first, then deepens. Smells musky. — 10 days ago
ID 113014 Revisiting this wine after a 3 year break. Oh has it changed! Prior notes were ‘citrus and lemon ‘. Couldn’t be further from that now. Wonderful golden colour, persistent fine bead. Time in the cellar has given this wine some ‘fat’ and is now more orchard stone fruit and candid honey flavour with subtle hints of white pear and cinnamon.
Looking forward to checking this out again in another 3 to 5 years time. — 5 days ago
