Hart Davis Hart is excited to offer the highly anticipated 2004 Krug, Brut and Krug, Grande Cuvée 164èmé Édition. The 2004 Brut is complete with harmonious tension and elegant radiance; it’s a vibrant, fresh yet dense Champagne that is another success in a string of great vintage releases from Krug, receiving a strong 18+ rating from Jancis Robinson. A signature of Krug Champagnes, Grande Cuvée 164èmé is full of energy and brisk flavors with Antonio Galloni awarding it 97-points and calling it “a wine of total pedigree and class…[a] spectacular, captivating wine.” Crafted from a blend of more than 120 wines from ten or more different years, Krug Grande Cuvée is recreated from scratch each year. Krug Grand Cuvée 164èmé Édition is based on the particularly balanced and beautiful wines of the 2008 vintage and blended with a wide range of rich and deep reserve wines resulting in a truly grand Champagne.

2004 Krug, Brut
18+ JR
"Very pure and greenish straw. Savoury nose. Very dense but flyaway linseed nose. Quite rich on the palate. Tight knit. Very solid with baked-apple flavours. Lots of density. Called ‘luminous freshness’ by the Krug team. Masses of energy." (18+ points) JancisRobinson.com, 28 August 201
MV Krug, Grande Cuvée, 164th Edition
97 AG
"Krug's NV Grand Cuvée 164 Edition is a total knockout. Based on the 2008 vintage, the 164th Edition shows all the crystalline tension and energy that is such a signature of the year. At times, the 164 reminds me of the 2008 vins clairs I tasted after harvest. The flavors are brisk, delineated and pulsing with energy, while the more oxidative notes that are such a signature of Krug Champagnes are not especially evident. A wine of total pedigree and class, the 164 reminds me of some of the great Grand Cuvées of the 1960s and 1970s I have been lucky to taste over the years. No Champagne lover will want to be without this spectacular, captivating wine. All that said, readers should be patient, as the 164 is painfully young, austere and in need of serious cellaring." (97 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, July 2017
