James Suckling 94 points – Complexity from the very outset with praline, honey, grilled-hazelnut and nougat aromas leading to a fresh background of peaches, lemons and grapefruit. Chardonnay leads on the nose for now. The palate has finesse, fleshy appeal and terrific focus. Long, powerful and seamless. A strong edition of Grande Cuvee. Drink or hold..September/2018
Decanter 94 points – The 166th manifestation of Monsieur Krug’s inspiration has as its youngest year 2010 – a season described by Eric Lebel as tumultuous’ – its fruits wonderfully complemented by 42% reserve wine going back to 1998. The final blend has only 16% Pinot Meunier, and unsurprisingly the 45% Pinot Noir is starting to assert itself with notes of nectarine and redcurrant garlanded by soft spices and honey, while Chardonnay’s citric grip remains discrete in the background. Despite its relative youth in terms of the Krug canon, this is already exceptionally complete and purer, maybe, than the Krugs of old. There’s no compromise in terms of power and intellectual intrigue..October/2018
A astonishing mosaic of flavors,made of 50 wines from 6 to 10 different years gives Krug Grande Cuvee it`s complexity, elegance and flavor year after year.
Accompanies food well as long as not too acid or sweet, and all traditional and excotic dishes.
