Wow. Very pure and intense. Driving fruit with gorgeous acidity and balance. Pretty primary still with huge length. Apparently stored at Krug until 2017. Amazingly fresh and balanced.

An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

One of the best examples of champagne I’ve ever had. The moment I saw it in the glass, I was sold. Then I smelled it, and I was in love. Just absolutely mind boggling. I was between Jacques Selosse or older vintage Krug, and eventually felt very confident in my JSelosse guess. Supremely and beautifully oxidized. Sherry, candied ginger, honey drizzled stone fruits with orange marmalade covered scone. Nutty too. I can’t get enough of this style of champagne.

Lovely soft lemon with biscuity fresh breads nose. Lovely fine acidity, with hints of orange, oyster shells and a calm balancing minerality. Expansive and more and more delicious as time goes by in the glass. A sweetness in the edges. Wonderful.

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

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.

Tons of acid. So fresh it's amazing. With time it's really fleshing out and showing secondary caramel flavors
