Another night, another insane Krug. Tessa’s palate has certainly been calibrated for this because the blind was instantly untangled by her - this is Krug… 02’ perhaps? Boom! Thanks for sharing this, Toni. Typical Krug opulence, yet so energetic. Just starting to mature, it combined ripeness, great structure, and phenolic grip, with deep mineral drive and acidity. Just hitting it’s stride, but I reckon it still has a long way to go. Love it!

Peach and limestone on the nose. Delicate citrus. Really pretty and quietly lush. Great balance and acidity. Still very young but showing a glimpse of what it can be which is quite something. This has a way to go and will be amazing.

A lovely nose of biscuit, lemon curd, šalinity. It’s in great shape. The palate is extraordinary- a sweetness at the edges, soft minerality, loads of complexity and a long, fresh finish. A superb bottle and an extraordinary wine.

Checking in… the first of these. Super tight and very young. Bright acidity. Steel, stone. Punchy fruit but all wrapped up and right now. Will be spectacular in a few years. All promise!

Pale gold. Still a decent mouse. Lovely but nose- hazelnut, brioche, some hints of orange rind. Still fresh and dynamic with a long complex finish. A really good bottle.

Bright, lovely. Focussed. Very fine mousse and notes of lemon. Slate, white flowers. Really vigorous but subtle and finessed. Great stuff.

Golden in color, very pretty.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and small bubbles.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Showing lots of yeast and bread notes with citrus, limes, green apples, Mediterranean spices, herbs, white pepper and minerals.

Tasting this aged vintage champagnes is always a great experience. I really liked the nose once it opened up.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime, and I liked it better once it warmed up a bit.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

Paired very well with the caviar and the charcuterie board.

12% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$450.

A Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend with aromas of fruit, spice and brioche notes, nice mousse and bubble flow. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of white peaches and ripe apple with hints of lemon zest. Long finish ending with rich yeasty mineral character. Drinks well now.

A lovely nose. Hints of spice and toast notes. On the palate secondary notes coming through but lovely freshness. Quite punchy in the middle with good acidity. Apricots and a relief minerality. Really complex and in a great place.

Very savory and full of umami. Beautifully developed. Always the best throughout the meal
