Krug Vintage is not the selection of the best wines of a particular year, but rather the expression of that year according to Krug. At Krug, each wine is meticulously selected; therefore Krug Vintage does not compete with other cuvees. It is neither superior nor inferior to them; it is quite simply created differently. When Krug decides to reveal the expression of a particular year, it selects only those wines that have a surprising story to tell, a story that Krug alone can relate to. Composed of wines from a single year, each Krug Vintage bears an original emotion with it, an unequalled pleasure and an extraordinary surprise that blossoms in the glass. Serenely enclosed in the cellars for at least a decade, Krug Vintage is only made available when it is truly ready. Its performance, magnitude and presence astonish those drinking it… for quite some time.
Wine SpectatorVery aromatic, with lots of rose water, pickled ginger, ground coffee and cardamom accents on the nose and finely textured palate. The flavors of ripe black cherry, grapefruit granita, piecrust, fleur de sel and spun honey are enlivened by well-honed acidity, creating a mouthwatering impression on the lightly chalky finish.
