Krug, Collection 750ml 1988France, Champagne
The 1988 Collection is the second life of vintage Krug, having spent 27 years on the lees. Krug 1988 is an expressive vintage, as opulent and sensual as the vintages of 1982, 1976, 1964 and 1947. The House of Krug decided to present this vintage after Krug 1989 and 1990.
'Gorgeous, exuding aromas and flavors of baked black currant, toasted hazelnut and coffee liqueur, along with subtle hints of elderflower, oyster shell and white truffle. The rich profile relies on soft, citrus peel acidity, as well as a tang of salinity for freshness and balance. The plush, creamy texture feels like cashmere on the palate. A beauty at any age. Disgorged fall 2017. Tasted 2019.' – Wine Spectator, 96/100
