Krug 1996 is extraordinary indeed—an extreme, eccentric champagne that first caresses the senses with its rich aromas, firm texture and full, ripe flavors, then dramatically explodes into jubilant freshness. Rich, radiant gold illuminated by slender streams of bubbles.
A powerful, majestic Champagne. Deep and compelling, with aromas of whole-grain toast, coconut and dried citrus that draw you in. Lean and racy on the palate, with a creaminess that's yet to be integrated. A classic '96, with ripe, exotic aromas and a steely structure. Still a baby, with the long, resonant finish confirming its potential.
