Since its foundation in 1843, Krug has had a longstanding reputation for the quality of its Champagne, most especially for its Vintage and Grand Cuvee productions, and has strong global following from wine connoisseurs and Champagne lovers.
Their Vintage Champagne has always come in highly limited quantities in comparison to most other Prestige Cuvee Champagnes as they have been extremely discerning in when a vintage champagne should be produced. Because of that, when one is released, there is a solid guarantee on its quality. Due to the worldwide demand, however, prices for Krug Vintage go up fairly quickly upon every release.
Their most recent release, the magical 2004, spent 13+ years in Krug's cellar before being revealed to the public. Their Chef des Caves of Krug, Eric Lebel, described this vintage to be delicate, balanced and full of citrus of all types - therefore named Luminous Freshness by the House - evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne. With 37% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay and 24% Pinot Meuniers, the Champagne is highly expressive, bright and elegant, with great balance between Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meuniers.

“Krug's 2004 Vintage is absolutely mesmerizing. Layers of bright, chiseled fruit open up effortlessly as the wine fleshes out with time in the glass. Persistent and beautifully focused, with a translucent sense of energy, the 2004 captures all the best qualities of the year. Moreover, the 2004 is clearly superior to the consistently underwhelming 2002 and the best Krug Vintage since 1996. Readers who can find it should not hesitate, as it is a magical 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.
