Krug Collection 94ag Premier 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

97 Points, Wine Spectator: "Animated and fresh, this is exotic on the nose and palate, with a finely woven tapestry of ground ginger, chamomile, pineapple pâte de fruit, grilled nut and biscuit flavors. Refined in texture and persistent on the long, truffle-laced finish. Drink now through 2025." 12/14 94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 1985 Brut Collection takes some time in the glass to finally open up. I love the way the 1985 turns rich, burnished and vinous with air. Hazelnuts, ash, smoke and truffles are some of the nuances that flow from this rich, textured Collection. I have tasted the 1985 four times recently and this is one of the finer, fresher bottles I have sampled. Ideally the wine is best enjoyed sooner rather than later." 12/10 "The '85 is a beautifully, subtly creamy ornament with ultra elegance and a uniquely broad length...95." RJ 10/07.
