Krug, Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition NV

RRP £380.00

A seductively charred, toastand sweet brioche-scented nose, with layers of vanilla and baking spices. Lots of appley and peachy fruit, with luscious honey tones. An impressively intense but elegantly detailed, seemingly light palate that comes with both energy and tension. No wonder it feels fresh – 68% of the blend comes from the zingy 2008 vintage – but there is also plenty of reserve wine complexity through wines going back to 1990. A hugely impressive wine already, but you can feel there is so much more to come.
