Mature with elegance complexity and power at its perfect spot now . Tons of caramel , toffee ; nuts with spiced apple good acidity and a palate staining finish wow!

1979 Krug. Medium golden hue. Nose is peachy, toffee, slight hint of sherry that blows off fairly quickly into an almost floral bouquet. Intoxicating. The mouthfeel is wonderful - acidity is still roaring but not overpoweringly sour like the 1990 which I found unbalanced in comparison. Deep concentration of flavour - slight nuttiness with air. The finish is mind blowing - a good two minutes and powerful. For me the finish and character of the wine edges the too perfect 1988. One of the greatest champagnes I have had. A legend with still a good amount of time left. Drink now until 2035.
