The complex nose of grain, biscuit, citrus and honey indicates some use of wood, while the palate is tight and elegant. What's most impressive is the texture, all filigree and finesse, from start to finish. An elegant version, with subtle intensity and length. Drink now through 2010. 5,500 cases imported. Score: 94. —Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2005.
This multivintage blend nails the essence of Krug, intense richness of fruit and flavor without weight. Meaty mushroom and soy aromas are balanced by rich red fruits, citrus, toast and mineral notes. Long finish. Score: 94. —Joe Czerwinski, December 01, 2005.
An enchanting bouquet. Full round aromas. A flavor of roasted hazelnuts whos depth is drawn out in the mouth ending in a flowery fresh note.
The composition of this non vintage cuvee is a stunning mosaic of flavours where the three champagne grapes, 20-25 growths and 6-10 different years, combine to give Grand Cuvée its complexity, elegance and consistency year after year, blend after blend.
Accompanies food well as long as not too acid or sweet, and all traditional and excotic dishes.
