The year 2006 was probably one of the most epic vintages in recent decades as it experienced some of the most extreme weather changes - having extreme high temperatures with 23 days over 30°C, and went from dry periods to intense rainfall in August, with the equivalent of 2 months' rain falling in a mere 2 weeks. This extreme weather conditions gave birth to some rich and concentrated grapes but which still offered freshness and acidity needed to create a great and classic Krug champagne, which is also where the Krug 2006 got its nickname "Capricious Indulgence".
The Krug 2006 vintage is made with a combination of Pinot Noir (45%), ripe and full-bodied Chardonnays (35%) which add roundness and opulence, and Meuniers (20%) bringing tension and length, and had been cellared for 12 years before its release, giving it a beautiful balance and finesse that we can taste today. It offers generous and intense aromas on the palate, so wonderful that it was awarded 97 points by William Kelley from The Wine Advocate, commenting that it is "beautifully balanced and will give immense pleasure for decades".

97pts William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Krug's superb 2006 Brut, which will be released this year, numbers among the vintage's high points, unfurling in the glass with a complex and expressive bouquet of tarte tatin, warm biscuits, ginger, honeycomb, dried white flowers, smoke and toasted nuts. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and textural, with a fleshy attack that reflects the warm vintage but segues into a beautifully vibrant palate that's deep and surprisingly reserved, displaying superb definition, delicately chalky structure and a long, lively finish. While this is a powerful vintage Krug, it's also beautifully balanced and will give immense pleasure for decades.
