White flowers, Mandarin orange, dried lemon peel, dried lime zest, cream and pastry crust. Evolves into candy cap mushroom, wet leaves, wet stone, super high acidity. Like to see this one evolve.

Huge and toasty without oxidative qualities. Balanced and full. Krug!

It’s really difficult to achieve power and elegance at the same time but this wine achieves it beautifully. Still a baby, it should continue to improve over the next 5-10 years. 39% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 24% Meunier. The 1st time Chardonnay has dominated the blend. 11 years on lees; 5g/L dosage

Light gold, nicely effervescent in the glass. Notes of lemon, chalk and a little toast. Creamy in the mouth. This is just getting started.

Krug's 2004 is a total stunner. What a Champagne. Vastly superior to the consistently underwhelming 2002 and the best Krug Vintage since 1996....

Razor sharp acidity and minerality at the core, on the linear side at the moment but with enough flesh on the bones to keep it from being too austere. Right now it is better with food than on its own, but just sipping it still delivers plenty of pleasure.
