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.

Full bodied, rich and toasty. It had aromas of dried apricot, smoke, orange, some minerals and a hint of toffee. This champagne is well balanced and smooth. It is deliciously elegant for its denseness. I personally prefer the 1988 of the three back to back years (88,89,90), but this is almost too close to call. Seems like this one could go for another 15 years.

Awesome wine. Slightly oxidized and very flavorful. Green apple, pear, orange peel, lychee, honeysuckle on the nose. Full and luscious on the palate with enough acid to carry it.

Agree with Tanzer, tasted in 2007 . The wine had superb richness and great depth of mature flavors yet still has alot of life ahead. Try next in 2009

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.
