Description & Technical Information
-
The potential for a Krug vintage champagne is identified during the blending of Krug Grande Cuvée. Once the non-vintage blend has been secured and all of the reserves earmarked, the wines displaying the most pronounced character of the vintage are blended to create the vintage champagne.

Krug ID: 105095
A re-release from Krug, Cellared in Reims until 2016

Weather: The 1995 harvest was a large crop and shared similar characteristics with the renowned 1998. Following four consecutive years of tough growing conditions, 1995 came as a huge relief to the region - the first universally declared vintage since 1990. The summer was mainly hot, with some showers a few weeks before the harvest. Now, over twenty years since bottling, champagne from 1995 are starting to show flavours of incredibly complex, rich and concentrated fruits.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 48% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 17% Pinot Meunier
Disgorged: Winter 2004
Drink: Now to 2040

Tasting Note: Pale straw colour with a firm, vegetal nose and a hint of lemon cream. This is a tightly wound champagne, loaded with brioche, toasted oak, lemon rind and flowers. The mousse is extremely fine and the style decidedly more linear and fresh than the 1996. This is all on the finish, like some great white Burgundies.. although medium-bodied, this appears to be built for extended cellaring. Still incredibly youthful for a champagne of such age.
