Vintage Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Starting to show well, but obviously has miles to go. The vintage works well for the classic Krug style as this is opulent and loaded with rich toasty fruit showing apple, citrus and toffee. Supported by great acidity and has barely started to develop. — 19 hours ago

Grande Cuvée 162 Ème Édition Brut Champagne Blend

Last night’s “Evening With Krug” event, where they officially released their 2006 vintage. Beautiful evening with many different Krug offerings paired with a delicious meal.

Since the ‘06 was being released, they wanted to also pour the ‘06 base Edition. I preferred this over the 167, mainly because it seemed more Krug like. Slightly oxidative, toasty, lots of sweet toffee and nougat aromatics. Fresh honeyed pastry, ginger, and such a decadent profile on the palate. This is going to get even better, and is such a great buy...especially when these Grande Cuvée bottles have 88% reserve wine in them going back to the early ‘90s.

Brut Champagne Rosé Blend

The 23eme Edition. This is still young, but so focused and precise. The freshness and lift of the red fruit seems to float on top of the round yeastiness of the finish. Perfect acidity and brilliant balance. — 18 hours ago

This is now my second time having the 167 in the last two months, and my impression is consistent. This has a base of the 2011 vintage, and seems to show the coldness of that vintage as this is quite light...doesn’t flex Krug’s powerful and rich profile. Stone fruits, wet rock, chalky limestone and yeast picking up the longer it’s in the glass. Very balanced and down the middle.

22ème Édition Brut Champagne Rosé Blend

Last night’s “Evening With Krug” event, where they officially released their 2006 vintage. Beautiful evening with many different Krug offerings paired with a delicious meal.

This is based on the 2010 vintage. I believe this was actually my first Krug rosé...and it may have been the greatest rosé champagne I’ve had to date. I was curious how this would taste based on Krug’s style, and the first note that hit me on the nose was strawberry shortcake. A sweetness accompanied by yeast, but the fruit was very pure and clean. Raspberries, red berries, cran-raspberry scone, and delicate rose petals up front before a mineral and limestone streak highlights the finish. Knockout pairing with braised short ribs.

@David T : I have to agree. Mesmerizing, but the price tag was shocking.
