Krug, Grande Cuvée 168ème Edition NV

RRP £165

Based on the fine yet small-sized crop of 2012 and complemented by a wealth of mature reserve wines, this perfect blend comes with a refined yet expressive nose of ripe stone fruits, candied lemon, baked apple and ginger, followed by charismatic notes of oak, yeast and honeycomb. On the palate it is tight with brisk acidity lining the ample fruitiness, its every drop just oozing ageing capacity.
