Wine Tasting NotesKrug Collection represents the last bottles available of an exceptional past vintage, carefully stored in the Krug cellars. An absolute rarity, it is the ultimate expression of the legendary longevity of Krug champagnes.TASTEThe first fermentation in small oak casks, which naturally favours a slow, long evolution of the wine, means that Krug Vintages remain almost eternally fresh and lively. At the same time, they go through different lifecycles, during which the overall balance of the taste shifts as individual flavours become more intense. With Krug Collection, flavours such as roasted brioche, vanilla and caramel come to the fore, followed by dried fruit, honey and coffee, and later still truffles.The experience of any Krug Collection depends both on the individual characteristics of the particular vintage and on the point it has reached in the aging process. For this reason, Krug Collection is endlessly surprising a true discovery.

Winemaker's Notes:

Krug Collection represents the last bottles available of an exceptional pastvintage, such the 1985, carefully stored in the Krug cellars. An absoluterarity, it is the ultimate expression of the legendary longevity of Krugchampagnes. "Krug 1985 is a full-flavored, muscular Champagne, still very fresh andcomplex. Hints at mushroom and sous-bois, spice and leather, with biscuit,coffee and citrus elements. The firm structure comes though on the finish,which remains fresh and smoky for minutes." (Wine Spectator.com - Sept 2008)
