TASTING NOTES

"Composed around the harvest of 2004 with no less than 121 wines from 12 different vintages dating back as far as 1990, Krug's NV Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition (ID 214025) is in brilliant shape today and a great Champagne. Composed of 44% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Meunier, this intensely yellow-golden shining cuvée is very deep and complex on the rich, perfectly ripe and balanced nose where ripe stone fruit aromas such as peaches and mirabelles are displayed in the first moments along with some dashes of fresh lime or lemon juice on a lobster fished out of the Atlantic just a short while before. After a while, beautiful iodine and algal expressions intertwine with mussels and limestone notes on the fascinatingly pure, dense and mineral nose. The palate is intense, round, lush and almost rich, but it has the lifting finesse and mineral freshness of the 2004 ingredient, which leads to a very long yet highly delicate and perfectly balanced finish with stimulating salinity and mineral structure. Tasted in New York in November 2018, four and a half years after the disgorgement." Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"Smooth and jazzy and utterly swallowable. Long and richly savoury. Fabulous! Open. Perfect now. Rich and exciting." JancisRobinson.com
