Review:
The 160+ year old House of Krug constructs this multi-vintage Champagne Krug Brut Grande Cuvee.

In the glass, this Krug is golden in color. There is a slow, percolating flow of bubbles. Aromas are deep, rich, with a golden yeasty musty aroma.

On the palate, there is a round aromatic feel, smooth and funky, with a visit by very ripe melons. It is a round sensation, but lifted by sweet, full acids. It sports an even, lengthy finish. Three stars out of five.

Robert Parker approved, awarding 93 points and writing in Wine Advocate, "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."
