Krug, Vintage 1981

RRP £20,880.00 (case of 12)

The tasting’s biggest surprise. Bright, deep orange-toned colour. Supple, deeply fruity nose, with fragrant pastry notes, roasted almonds, orange blossom and apricot jam. The nose opens up gloriously over time. Full and round, soothingly mellow palate, with wonderfully perky acidity bringing freshness and vibrancy to the concentrated whole. Highly classy, calm and complex wine from the seldom declared, tiny yet excellent quality vintage. A perfect bottle at its very peak.
