A superb Champagne and still youthful. Honey, ginger, lemon confit, coffee and mineral aromas come to mind, all kept focused by firm, tightly wound structure. The finish is where its pedigree shines through, lingering like warm gingerbread and coffee.

The 1988 Krug makes a fabulous start. Tasted from a perfect bottle, the 1988 remains bright and focused, with all the energy of this great vintage very much on display. Time has naturally softened some of the contours and added a good bit of nuance, but the 1988 Krug remains a Champagne of crystalline precision. I loved it.
