1990 Krug Brut

$1,500.00

Krug is the first and, as yet, only Champagne House to create prestige Champagnes every year since its foundation in 1843.

At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year.

Krug Vintage is not the selection of the best wines of a good year, but the selection of the wines which better express the story of the year. The creation is then enhanced by a stay over ten years in Krug’s cellars.

Description

97+ Points Stephen Tanzer
Full copper-gold color. Initially restrained, brooding nose exploded with aeration, showing apple, orange, apricot, honey, iodine, smoke, hazelnut, macadamia and a suggestion of dry oloroso sherry. Dense, full, chewy and rich; an extraordinarily solid Champagne with an intriguing suggestion of Calvados. Broadens toward the back and goes on and on on the echoing aftertaste, with rich, mellow notes of toffee, brown butter and marrow. Like the ’92 Clos du Mesnil, this displays its powerful underlying acidity with aeration (Krug’s wines never go through malolactic fermentation) and should be long-lived.

94 Points Antonio Galloni
The 1990 Vintage, tasted from magnum, was remarkable for its opulent and exuberant personality and incredible finesse.

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
At its finest, the 1990 Vintage is superb, revealing a slightly oxidized style, but a full-bodied, rustic, rich personality with the body of a red wine, but loads of character.

18/20 Jancis Robinson
A particularly fresh example of this wine but still very full bodied and expansive.
