...aromas of pastry cream, dried fruits, pear, warm spices, freshly baked bread and vanilla pod...medium to full-bodied, pillowy and fine-boned, with excellent concentration, racy acids and a precise, chiseled profile.
A lovely, mouthwatering Champagne, with a vivid and finely detailed panoply of baked nectarine, lime blossom, ground coffee, mandarin orange peel, candied ginger and salted almond notes set in a lithe, limber frame. Seamlessly knit, with a sense of buoyant vitality, this has a harmonious, elegant frame for the richly expressive flavor range.
...offering up a beautiful bouquet of pear, delicious apples, hazelnut, a complex base of soil tones, orange zest, patissière and a gorgeous array of floral scents in the upper register...deep, full-bodied, crisp and beautifully mineral in profile, with a fine core, refined mousse and a very long, complex and perfectly balanced finish.
Lots of acidity! Extremely lively and brisk... Very clean and fresh. Bone dry but broachable and quite charming within the Krug ethos. Really quite friendly.
