Monstrous texture and acid high enough to dissolve steel, great champagne in 500 years

One of my favorites of the night. Delicious carmel and understated acidity.

Humming along very nicely right now. Precise and pure but enough juiciness to give it substance.

1966 vintage. Marzipan nose. Amazingly fresh bright and lively. Light gold color. A great bottle.

Shit picture. Great wine. Krug has long been one of my favorite '96s. Searing acid structure, but there's enough body, fruit and now secondary savories around it to keep it all together. Drinking now, but will go forever. A total skyscraper of a wine.
