NV Krug Grande Cuvee

Post by Blake Brown » Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:53 pm

NV KRUG GRANDE CUVEE- in a half bottle and a perfect fit inside the foot mold of one of my swimming fins [the NV Krug Rose half bottle occupied the other fin]; this is the first time I realised the code on the bottle actually specifies it`s for a half bottle; the code was 114005 which denoted the bottle received its cork in the winter of 2013/2014, comes from 183 wines from 12 different vintages with 1990 the oldest and 2007 the youngest; it also was ages for over 5 years, is made up of 37% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay and 31% Pinot Meunier and is part of the 163 eye edition.

Tasting notes: rich and full bodied with layers of complexity, this had an ever evolving fruit profile which included peach, pear, apple and lemon all of which had accents of ginger, toasted brioche, almond butter and honey; it was so full on, our best enjoyment was to just take occasional sips and enjoy all of the treasures as they slid in, over and down as did the sun into the ocean while consuming.

Cheers,
Blake
