1990 Krug Vintage, Champagne, France

Pale yellow with a very tight young nose – Lemon peel, citrus, lime and flowers. As it sat in the glass it developed more marzipan and very much white burgundy in style. But then it was time to taste it : WOW!! The taste is extremely long – over one minute and the mousse shatters into tiny particles in the mouth and covers every single spot on the palate. This baby beauty is way too young for drinking now ,but that aftertaste that just went on and on…Can I wait 10 years to drink my remaining bottles?. Doubt it, but it will be close to perfection then. For now (98+)

(Tasted November 2004)
