Krug Champagne Brut Vintage 2009

External Review:

Krug s 2000 Brut Vintage is just beginning to hit its stride. Hints of pastry butter toasted almonds dried pears and apricots are all woven together beautifully in this distinctive gorgeous Champagne. All the Krug signatures come to life beautifully in the glass. The 2000 is still quite young especially if readers are looking for more tertiary complexity and nuance. At the same time. I don t think the 2000 will ever be one of the most explosive wines made at this historic property but it offers considerable medium-term appeal and plenty of personality. This is a great showing from Krug. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Bright gold. Pungent aromas of candied orange buttered toast pear skin and vanilla with a smoky nuance that gains power in the glass. Stains the palate with intense pear liqueur citrus pith and brioche flavors picking up notes of licorice and candied ginger with air. A bright mineral note adds lift and energy to the finish which clings with superb tenacity and lingering smokiness. This complex concentrated Champagne is showing very well right now but has the legs to age for years to c

Very aromatic with lots of rose water pickled ginger ground coffee and cardamom accents on the nose and finely textured palate. The flavors of ripe black cherry grapefruit granita piecrust fleur de sel and spun honey are enlivened by well-honed acidity creating a mouthwatering impression on the lightly chalky finish. Drink now through 2028.

Vintage: 1988 11/14/2013

Opulent hazelnut brioche and apple strudel aromas on the nose with a faint whiff of chalk dust. The palate is restrained and notably taut for Krug with high acidity and tightly wound roasted nut stone fruit and toasted croissant flavours. Fine frisky bubbles and a long praline finish. Drink now - 2020. Tasted January 2009. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
