MV KRUG GRANDE CUVEE- the ID code [214035] gave information that included this bottle being made from 183 different wines from 12 different vintages from 1990-2007, receiving its cork in 2014 and although not on the label, it is known as 163 eme; made from 37% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 31% Pinot Meunier; this was the 4th bottle of 6 that I bought from the same blend and it was the best by far and the others were really good; pleasant and inviting aromatics jump out of the glass and are followed by an ever unfolding and expanding taste profile which included spicy and toasty brioche accents to the initial lemon lime flavours which gave way to honeysuckle then some nectarine and apricot came in by mid palate; the texture was creamy and rich and carried all of the treasures to the back end with staying power; it had bright acidity, layered depth and exuded power and finesse; absolutely the total package.
