1989 Krug - Brut Vintage Champagne Blend - France - Champagne - White

France - Champagne

White Champagne Blend
Producer Notes

Krug Champagnes are famous for their rich, nutty, elegant and extremely food-friendly nature. Founded in 1843 by German immigrant Johann-Joseph Krug, the house has since been run by many generations of the Krug family, and the general style of the champagne has evolved along with that progression.

Issue Issue 93

Vinous, minerally nose dominated by toffee and apple. Mouthfilling, quite dry and very intensely flavored, with penetrating yet harmonious acidity. Offers the exotic fruit quality of the vintage but has the minerally, steely spine to handle the very ripe flavors. Very long and firm. Impressively fine for the year. Krug released this wine before the '88.

Very rich, gorgeous, full and winning. Broad but persistent and sufficiently vibrant. Like all 1989 champagnes, more amply proportioned than most, but this has real zest too. (JR)

A most voluptuous, honey-saturated Krug. Already richly evolved. Butterscotchy, with a long aftertaste. Less classical than the '88, but just as good for the moment.

Rich, lush aromas of dried fruit and citrus marmalade, this is Champagne at its most opulent. Honeyed and round on the palate, with fine acidity keeping it focused. Gorgeous now, yet will age well.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
