Great sparkling wine ... everything you expect. Nice toasty taste but bright, almost citrus, nose. Paired extremely well with sushi flavors. Wish I could have more ...

Elegant yet rich nose,complex yet very approachable champagne. It is said this Champagne aims to be the greatest expression of pleasure and it definitely is very wonderful to drink!

What is there to say? Krug is Krug. Remí Krug has been quoted as saying "if the Grande Cuvée is a basic non-vintage champagne then Rolls Royce is just a car." Or something similar. So true. It may seem overpowering for some people (it's not a bubbly you drink without noticing), but few champagnes evoke such a longing gaze in a wine lover. Rich, complex, nutty and fabulous.

Oddly, the most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvandeacute;e, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth.

Heady in itandrsquo;s aromatic complexity, Krugandrsquo;s multivintage cuvandeacute;e has the power of younger wines melded with the broad elegance of older reserves. Potent acidity matches the richness, leaving an impression of high notes and bass notes in harmony. Burnished and remarkably long.

Pale bronze. Knockout nose combines smoke, maple syrup, fennel, chlorophyll, ginger, nutmeg and orange oil, all buttressed by a pungent, gamey, brothy element. Wonderfully ripe, smooth and harmonious, with the wineandrsquo;s sheer thickness and sweetness of fruit perfectly balanced by rather powerful but integrated acids. Compelling yeast autolyis character gives this multi-vintage blend great complexity. Remarkably slow-building, palate-staining finish. Ultimately comes across as sweeter than the comparatively forbidding Clos du Mesnil but you canandrsquo;t get either one of these remarkable wines off your palate.

Krug maintains this astonishing blend by selecting 40 to 50 lots from six to ten vintages in its stock. Part of the complexity comes from the contrast of youthful fruit and age; part from the layering of flavors. Then thereandrsquo;s its monumental scale. A voluptuous, massive, balanced wine.

A Champagne that fills the mouth with detailed, continuous, broad and precise flavors, Grande Cuvandeacute;e is composed for ultimate satisfaction. One taste lasts for minutes, though itandrsquo;s active rather than contemplative. If you consider individual flavors, the wine might suggest marzipan, quince paste, white chocolate, a dark range of fruits. It fills the mouth, playing in and out with each breath. The heady complexity of all the flavors taken together is what makes this wine symphonic, and completely engaging.

Resplendent in its new shiny gold label, Krug is a majestic Champagne. Its velvet texture, dominated by mature flavors, is toasty and rich, dense and complex. In the mouth, its beautiful roasted almond, spice and ripe pears all balance impressively. Could the wine be getting even better? No question andmdash; this is still one of the greatest nonvintage Champagnes.
