Falstaff Magazin (11-2015) Bright yellow gold with silvery reflections, lively sparkling. Thin yellow apple on a mineral and lemony background, on a background of sweet oriental spices, a little nougat, a hint of fresh ginger. Complex note of stone fruits underlying with some honey, orange zest, nuances of quince jelly, underlying firm acid structure, straight and precise on the finish, notes of sweetness of extract in the aftertaste , fine hazelnut accents, but also lemon, stays for a very long time, has some potential for development, more awe-inspiring Food companion. (8671 bottles and 659 magnums)

(02-2016) Less explosive on the nose than the Clos du Mesnil 1999 (tasted but not released because not deemed up to scratch) but with real presence on the palate. Lots to bite on. Neat and a little more obviously exuberant than the 2000 Clos du Mesnil tasted the previous evening. Certainly no shortage of acidity. And lots of potential to age.

Château informations

Krug Champagne house are based in Reims for more than 160 years. The Krug house was founded in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug, a native of Mainz (under the yoke of French - see: History of Mainz). It now belongs to the luxury group LVMH. It is headed by Remi Krug, representing the fifth generation, and the cellar master Eric Lebel.

Among the main techniques used, we find the wood in wine in small barrels made from 205-liter oak forest of Argonne. With an average age of 35 years the barrels are patched by coopers home and reused from one year to another. According to the cellar master: "The longevity of our champagnes is intimately linked to the residence they do in drums. ». Krug champagnes are sold at maturity in 2005 was the year of 1990 delivered. For some champagne, the house and lot of old vintages kept even longer as the year of 1981 has been disgorged and released in 2006 to less than 2,000 copies in the name Krug Collection.
