NV Champagne Krug Brut Champagne 166th Ed. Gift Box

One of the luxury champagne houses with a style that has a rich mousse, hefty dose of oak, vanilla, and toast this is the grande cuvee.


The MV Grande Cuvée 166ème, based on the 2010 vintage, offers good depth, but it also comes across as a bit angular and in need of time in bottle to soften. Certainly, next to the 2008 and 2009 editions, the 2010 is a touch rough around the edges. Even so, there is good freshness and verve to the bright citrus, mineral and floral flavors. ~ 94pts VM
