A name synonymous with prestige and quality, Krug is one of the greatest and most consistently excellent names in Champagne. Producing typically rich, full-flavoured and age-worthy examples, the distinct inimitable releases from this Champagne house never fails to impress and are a favourite amongst connoisseurs and collectors alike.
The 2004, named “Luminous Freshness” by the House, is a blend of Chardonnay (39%), Pinot Noir (37%) and Pinot Meunier (24%); it’s quite unusual for having so much Chardonnay. The nose begins with an expressive bouquet of gingerbread, candied citrus, green apple and quince, followed by richer notes of lemon meringue tart, plum, marzipan and mirabelle. A very balanced Champagne on the palate, light notes of brioche and honey gives way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, which enhances the very elegant finish. A youthful-feeling combination of delicacy, balance and freshness; this vintage is perfect to be enjoyed alongside fresh oysters, sashimi or lobster.
