WTN: Krug Grande Cuvée 375ml

Postby Jeff B » Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:35 pm

90 (August 2012) $75
I love these little half bottles, though there's nothing "little" about Krug! This particular half is still on the fresh side or so it seemed. A tasty concentrated dollop of lemon fruit is the main feature. A super clear and elegant champagne visually. The Krug Grande Cuvee is composed from around 120 wines! Not as mature as I like my champagnes but definitely a potential-packed wine.

Ouch on that price!

Yeah, that's an ugly price when you can get 750s for $115 if you search around.

Still love Krug though! Had the '90 Krug last night, and it was jaw droppingly good.
