(ID 112001, LLLMDW): Light yellow-gold. Highly aromatic bouquet of fresh tangerine, candied fig, pear skin and ginger, plus a smoky mineral overtone. Tangy, precise and concentrated, offering a complex blend of citrus and orchard fruit and floral flavors underscored by chalky minerality. Juicy, tightly focused, youthfully angular Champagne, with nervy acidity adding cut to the long, sappy finish. I can see why some long-time Krug fans might be perplexed by this bottling but I think that it will be a really outstanding bottle with another five-plus years of cellaring.

Simply the Best.......
I have consumed LR Cristal, too acidic; Dom P, nice but......; PJ Belle Epoque Vintage and Rose, lush but still not the complete package; Krug Vintage 1988, fantastastic but still something missing; Krug NV, they don't call it the Prince of Champagne for nothing, quite simply the best ever for ever. I always have 6 bottles just in case. Bring it into your life you will be richer for it. Enjoy. xx
I once had better than this...in a different bottle of NV Krug! Retains fine, tiny bubbles for a long time. Supremely long-long-long, chalky, tart finish.
Best bottle champagne I've ever had, hands-down!
This bottle is outstanding! The finish goes on for a good 45-60 seconds - creamy, hints of nut and vanilla, and smooth as could be. For a special occasion, I recommend NV Krug Grande Cuvee highly.
This one was an eye opener for me. Dennis at Gary's in Bernardsville talked me into buying Krug for my anniversary and I can't even begin to tell you how good it was! This is the richest, most flavorful Champagne I have ever had! I checked around and Gary's had the best price so I bought 6 more bottles for when we are on vacation at the shore.
This was a great champagne, no question about it, but people had been telling me how great it was. I had these great expectations about this champagne and it did not fulfill them as much as I expected. Maybe it is that I am not as experienced tasting upper end champagnes but Dom Perignon and Gosset have been better for my taste
Champagne-making is the highly refined art of blending base wines into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. These component wines come from different grape varieties (the white grape Chardonnay and the red varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and from different villages and vineyards. And because only four or five harvests per decade... Read More »
The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
