Krug 2006 – ‘Pleasure for Decades’
17 October 2019

A new release of vintage Krug is always, in our view, cause for celebration. This venerable house, under the expert guidance of Cellar Master Eric Lebel, seems incapable of releasing a bad wine. Today’s 2006 follows the much loved 2004 and paints a picture of a very different growing season, the cool restraint of 2004 giving way to the rich, caressing generosity of 2006. Tasting it earlier in the week our sense was that it looks a little like a young blend of the 1989 and 1990 vintages; it possesses a muscularity and intensity as the concentrated fruit fans out across the palate, yet finishes on freshness and salinity. It’s hard not to love…

“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.” - 97 Points – William Kelly, robertparker.com    Read More
