"When Krug is firing on all cylinders, there really is no substitute." -Antonio Galloni

Krug hit bulls-eye with their 2006. Without a doubt, it is one of the wines of the vintage.

Almost any discussion of Krug has to include the art of blending. It's this skill along with the corresponding array of superlative quality grapes to choose from that play an important role in Krug's success. It's impossible not to sense that these masterful blending skills paid additional dividends in this vintage.

The 2006 Krug is the total package. It hits you from a multitude of angles: there is regal grandeur and power cloaked in a richness that straddles accessibility and structure. The 2006 is a brilliantly clear and defined wine, quite intense and intricately layered. We love vintages of Krug like this. While not shy on power, it also delivers a radiant elegance that is unparalleled.

Krug represents one of the pinnacles of not just Champagne, but all of wine. Krug can be simply profound in its depth of complexity and finesse .While the greatness of the 2006 is a wine that is on full display today, it promises to be even more stunning in the decades to come. This is a don't miss.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media:

"The 2006 Krug Vintage is fabulous. Here the richness, breadth and texture of Pinot come through loud and clear in a Champagne that is classic Krug. Red plum, coffee, spice, baked apple tart and lemon confit all flesh out effortlessly in the glass. The ripeness of the year is evident, and yet the vibrancy of the Chardonnay lends so much energy. The 2006 can be enjoyed today, but also has the balance and stuffing to develop well for many years to come. This is a superb showing from the 2006."
