(L1D211024): Bright yellow-gold. Expressive, toasty bouquet of poached pear, white peach and orange zest, with toasted nut and anise nuances adding complexity. Dry and focused on the palate, offering ripe orchard fruit, buttered toast and ginger flavors that gain weight with air. Shows a suave blend of richness and tension, finishing with excellent clarity and lingering smoke, nut and gingerbread flavors. I'll bet that this Champagne will be even better with another five to ten years of bottle age.

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
France is the fountainhead of the grape varieties most craved by
North American wine drinkers: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir,
Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. In fact, these grapes are widely
referred to as "international" varieties because they have been planted and
imitated all over the world. 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...
