The Story

Unique to the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage is crafted to be different, to reveal the expression of a particular year. A year with character, a year with a special story to tell in a way that Krug alone can relate. To narrate this story, Krug has blended very expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Krug Vintage is the story of a year as seen by Krug; there are as many stories as there are Krug Vintages.

Written Notes

A year that is almost completely forgotten, but which produced the most delicious Champagne I have ever drunk. It was a shock of the positive kind when the cork flew off at great speed, and I saw the bubbling drink with its clear, middle-aged color. The nose cannot be described with words, but it was very like the 1945 Mouton Rothschild, with its tremendously rich tone of mint chocolate.

There were also layers of fruit and minerals, and the wine was chewy and huge, with a divinely minty, bready, and nectar-like basic taste. The finish was majestic, with a clear tone of truffles and aged wood, alongside the mint chocolate. Is the '28 even better?

A trio of Champagnes provided an intermezzo. The first bubbly had a great, sexy nose full of granulated sugar, bread and exotic nut. At first, it was ‘like whoa.’ Wine-like on its palate, the acidity was still there but not the petillance. Unfortunately, there was morning mouth flavors on the finish, and this 1938 Krug Private Cuvee was, indeed, oxidized despite its initial sex appeal
