WTN: Krug Grande Cuvée 375ml

by 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.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
