"Krug's superb 2006 Brut, which will be released this year, numbers among the vintage's high points, unfurling in the glass with a complex and expressive bouquet of tarte tatin, warm biscuits, ginger, honeycomb, dried white flowers, smoke and toasted nuts. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and textural, with a fleshy attack that reflects the warm vintage but segues into a beautifully vibrant palate that's deep and surprisingly reserved, displaying superb definition, delicately chalky structure and a long, lively finish. While this is a powerful vintage Krug, it's also beautifully balanced and will give immense pleasure for decades." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #242

"The deep golden hue speaks of a warm vintage. Already the nose reveals a strong character with great presence. The toast and dried-fruit nose is far from shy, with bold yet finely integrated oak and spicy complexity. On the palate, the sweet vanilla tones turn toward honey, with nutty notes persisting on the long, intense aftertaste. The Pinot Noir-prominent palate is generous and supple but stylishly refreshed by a fine, brisk acidic backbone. Beautifully textured and seductive and finishing with a nice bite of crispness and minerality. It has come around early, but there is the intensity and structure to support long aging. Potential for 97 points, but scored as tasted. (95 points) Essi Avellan MW, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 64, Q2, 2019

"Quite rich and polished. No hint of astringency. But zesty on top and with lots of undertow. (I’ve never heard anyone say of a Krug vintage that it shouldn’t have been released.) Long with a particularly rich finish." JancisRobinson.com
