Since the foundation in 1843, Krug has had a longstanding reputation for the quality of its Champagne, most especially for its Vintage and Grande Cuvee productions, with a strong global following from wine connoisseurs and Champagne lovers. To the delight of collectors around the world, there is actually a very limited number of Krug Vintage bottles that are kept further in ideal conditions in the House's cellars until it blossoms into a "second life" and reveals a new personality of the vintage, becoming "Krug Collection". The Collection often offers more complexity and depth than the Vintage, and becomes a completely different experience.
Just released this year, we are delighted to offer a very limited parcel of Krug Collection 1988, as well as Vintage 1988. This is a fantastic parallel-tasting opportunity which will allow any Champagne lover to fully experience the ultimate potential of the wine –
Krug Collection 1988
HK$6,300 per bottle
97pts Antonio Galloni
The 1988 Collection offers stunning interplay of vintage 1988 vibrancy with the complexity that has developed in bottle. Apricot, pastry, brioche, dried flowers, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes all infuse the 1988 with notable complexity and nuance. At 31 years of age, the 1988 Collection remains taut, classically austere and full of energy. It will drink well for another 20 years or more.
Krug Vintage Brut 1988
HK$4,200 per bottle
97pts Antonio Galloni
The 1988 Krug makes for a fabulous start. Tasted from a perfect bottle, the 1988 remains bright and focused, with all of the energy of this great vintage very much on display. Time has naturally softened some of the contours and added a good bit of nuance, but the 1988 Krug remains a Champagne of crystalline precision. I loved it.
