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.
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - 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.
Wine Advocate 93 points - Oddly, the most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvee, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth. Score: 93. —Robert Parker, December 2005.
Wine Spectator 94 points - 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.
Wine Spectator 97 points - This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur and toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028. From France.—A.N.
A astonishing mosaic of flavors,made of 50 wines from 6 to 10 different years gives Krug Grande Cuvee it`s complexity, elegance and flavor year after year.
|Accompanies food well as long as not too acid or sweet, and all traditional and excotic dishes.
|Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have cultivated the markedly individual character of their exceptional champagne, showing that same single-mindedness and sense of purpose with which the founder, Johann-Joseph Krug, set out alone in pursuit of his objective of creating a champagne with a taste all its own.
