It's been quite awhile since I've popped a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée which just happens to be one of my favorite wines in the world. No other Champagne house can capture this type of brilliance in their non-vintage wines. Krug is just simply on a pedestal of their own.....
On the nose of this particular bottle I get beautiful bread pudding, creme brulee, nutmeg, and lemon curd aromas. It's beautifully aromatic, with all the yeast and fresh bread notes you would expect from a Grande Cuvée.
On the palate the wine is jam packed with bread pudding, creme brulee, lemon-lime, bread dough, caramel, crushed stone, dry apricot, and honey suckle. The wine is of course brut dry, however there is a fruitiness and also some really nice caramel/creme that really makes this wine delicious and desirable. The finish sails on and on and there is a creaminess and tart key lime pie note that lingers on the palate for quite some time. Brilliant as always.....95 points
