Since the 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 a strong global following from wine connoisseurs and Champagne lovers. While the release of new Krug vintages is always highly-anticipated, “Grande Cuvée” is also one of the top interests of Champagne lovers as it is the ultimate expression of the Krug style - fermented in old oak barrels, aged on the lees for a minimum of six years and does not undergo any malolatic fermentation - all these contribute to the creation of a traditional Champagne with amazing quality as well as strong aging potential. Beside their Vintage and Grande Cuvee, Krug also has a small parcel of Clos du Mesnil in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. When first purchased, the Chardonnay grapes were blended into their non-vintage Grande Cuvee productions but they later realized the potential of the parcel and bottled them separately and became Krug Clos du Mesnil as we know them today. Only minuscule quantities produced and only produced when the vintage is outstanding, Krug's Clos du Mesnil has great similarities to that of the legendary Salon Mesnil and arguably does not fall any short of them as a matter of fact. Even renowned Champagne writer Richard Juhlin has said, "For me, there is nothing more beautiful on the palate than Clos du Mesnil’s velvet smoothness, fragrant nobility and citrus-fresh length, thanks to fruit from Champagne’s most distinguished grand cru in combination with brilliant winemaking from one of the finest and most prestigious Champagne houses of them all." Today we are excited to present to you a fantastic opportunity to collect an assortment case of Krug from the exceptional 2004 vintage, packed in OWC -
2004 Krug ‘Soloist to Orchestra' (OWC 3x75cl) Consists one bottle each of Clos du Mesnil, Vintage 2004 and 160th Grande Cuvee in an original wooden case HK$11,800 per case ETA 2 weeks Krug Clos du Mesnil 2004 98+pts Antonio Galloni The 2004 Clos du Mesnil captures all the pedigree of this epic Blanc des Blancs vintage. A soaring, majestic Champagne, the 2004 dazzles from the very first taste with its crystalline purity and brightness. In two tastings so far, the 2004 has been nothing less than a total showstopper. The vertical structure and pure, tightly-coiled power are the stuff dreams are made of. There is little doubt the 2004 is one of the very finest Clos du Mesnils in recent memory. Will it join the 1979, 1988 and 1996 as one of the all-time greats? Now, that is a tasting I would love to do! Krug 2004 97+pts Antonio Galloni 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. Krug Grande Cuvee 160th Edition 98pts Stephan Reinhardt Composed around the harvest of 2004 with no less than 121 wines from 12 different vintages dating back as far as 1990, Krug's NV Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition (ID 214025) is in brilliant shape today and a great Champagne. Composed of 44% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Meunier, this intensely yellow-golden shining cuvée is very deep and complex on the rich, perfectly ripe and balanced nose where ripe stone fruit aromas such as peaches and mirabelles are displayed in the first moments along with some dashes of fresh lime or lemon juice on a lobster fished out of the Atlantic just a short while before. After a while, beautiful iodine and algal expressions intertwine with mussels and limestone notes on the fascinatingly pure, dense and mineral nose. The palate is intense, round, lush and almost rich, but it has the lifting finesse and mineral freshness of the 2004 ingredient, which leads to a very long yet highly delicate and perfectly balanced finish with stimulating salinity and mineral structure. Tasted in New York in November 2018, four and a half years after the disgorgement.
