Always good, but the 169 is a little tight and austere right now.

Lovely as always— this had a brighter citrus streak in it than I expect, nose not yet as full as prior releases. Needs time.

Fresh stone fruit. Brioche. clean, crips apple. Fine bubbles. Keep going back to this one. Still young, edges should round nicely on this.

Just fantastic as always! Perfect blend of acidity, minerals, semi sweetness, and funk, not many champagnes hit the way Krug does!
