James Halliday

'Composed of 43% chardonnay, 42% pinot noir and 15% pinot meunier, the only Grand Marque to use pinot meunier in its vintage releases. Glowing, bright green - gold, the palate is an intense battle for supremacy between the layered richness that is the DNA of all Krugs, with roasted nuts, figs and honey on one side, glorius grapefruit, Meyer lemon and mineral acidity on the other. Krug is the greatest wine of Champagne'

Wine Spectator

A powerhouse, with a dense and expressive core of toasted brioche, candied kumquat, espresso crème, crystallized honey and salted pistachio flavors. The fine, creamy mousse and well-meshed acidity lend a sense of finesse that cloaks the firm structure and exuberance of this impressive Champagne. Disgorged spring 2010. Drink now through 2030.
