Krug, Grande Cuvee 169th Edition NV

RRP £169

Based on the 2013 vintage, the 169th Grande Cuvée really wears the year’s signature in its radiant and racy fruit profile and amplified, saline length. The fine base year is supported by 40% of reserve wines from 10 different vintages all the way down to 2000. The expressive, stylishly oak-lined nose comes with a delicious fresh, fruity profile; complex and overt already. The palate is tighter, with real vibrancy to it. Pure fruitiness and firm structure of tension, this edition is a keeper.
