"Luminous freshness"

This latest release of the famous vintage Krug Champagne is simply unstoppable. Recommended by Tom Harrow.

"Fresh, zesty spiced lemon and citrus notes of top Meunier and elegantly built Chardonnay, with a hint of honeysuckle and spice. Supremely subtle mouthfeel, showing textural quince and plum flavours.Optimally ripe, not heavy, with magical, very Krug-like acidity. It's so fresh. From a fine Chardonnay year, it has the ideal blend of 39% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 24% Pinot Meunier. Great potential. Maturity: 2019-2035"
95/100 Decanter (Sept-2017)

"39% Chardonnay, 24% Meunier, 37% Pinot Noir. They thought this would be ready before the 2002, so they had some bottles disgorged in 2014. The 2004 growing season benefited from 2003 when there was such a small yield post frost that the vines built up reserves, meaning that 2004 was a very generous crop and selection was permitted. Very pure and greenish straw. Savoury nose. Very dense but flyaway linseed nose. Quite rich on the palate. Tight knit. Very solid with baked-apple flavours. Lots of density. Called ‘luminous freshness’ by the Krug team. Masses of energy. Maturity: 2017-2030"
18+/20 Jancis Robinson (Aug-2017)

"Intense, refined, herbal nose of powdery zestiness, oyster shells, gunflint, lime, ginger biscuits and camomile. Palate is very clinical, sinuous, taut like a bunch of salty, chalk-dusted lemons balancing on a highwire. The soundtrack for this vintage is Leanne La Havas Unstoppable, the tagline Luminous freshness, c/o Krug oenologue Julie Cavil. Spot on."
