1985 Krug Clos du Mesnil, Champagne, France
When I tasted this Champagne I wasn't writing tasting notes. So this is a rewind six years later. But it's easy to write this tasting note as I remember it so well. It started my interest and it's today the best Champagne I have ever tasted. So defined, so elegant, so concentrated and one of the purest and most complex things I have ever tasted. Time stood still. I hope to return someday.
