TASTING NOTES

"A very complex nose here with ripe, deep lemon and grapefruit aromas on offer plus some restrained chalky elements, biscuit, some roasting herbs, hints of pepper, then a little tobacco too. Very complex and full of fresh characters. The palate has a wealth of different fruit flavors like lemon, peach, nectarine, and plums. The finesse in terms of structure, detail and precision is staggering; sherbet-like elegance with immense concentration and power. A great Grande Cuvée. Incredibly satisfying. Based on 2006.Krug ID 14024." JamesSuckling.com

"This mouthwatering Champagne shows a lovely sense of finesse, with firm acidity deftly married to a rich profile of crème de cassis, toasted brioche and lime blossom, accented by hints of café au lait, singed orange peel and exotic spice. Long and plush on the finish. Disgorged 2014. Drink now through 2024." Wine Spectator

"Krug's MV Grande Cuvée is weightless and totally graceful from start to finish. The current release is a distinctly fresh, floral version of the Grand Cuvée, with tons of brightness in its aromas and flavors, but less in the way of the oxidative notes that are sometimes present in Grand Cuvée. Still, there is a lot to like here. This is one of the most beautiful Grand Cuvées I have tasted over the last few years. This release is based on the 2005 vintage, and includes wines back to 1990. This is Lot 411046. Disgorged: 2011." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Strong petrol aromas presently largely dominate the background notes of citrus, yeast and apple. The relatively full-bodied flavors possess admirable richness and solid power while displaying a moderately fine mousse shapes the dry but not austere finish. Some may find the distinct petrol character of the nose more than they like though I suspect that with age it will dissipate." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 67
