Krug Grande Cuvée Brut NV, Champagne, France
PRESS: Wine Enthusiast - 91 points. "The flagship of Krug, this is one of the iconic Champagnes. Its richness and balance of fruit and maturity come both from six years bottle aging before disgorgement and a generous use of reserve wines, so that as many as 10 years can be represented in one blend. The result is a complex wine which goes just as well as an aperitif as a food wine."
