Krug Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Surprisingly open and approachable. The sweetness a lot of 2006’s with pretty floral notes (a hint of honeysuckle?). Not a powerful nose- quite light and precise. Very settled and balanced on the palate. Flinty and balanced with a faint hint of sandalwood. Deceptively bright and open. I suspect this has a good journey ahead if it- great balance and fine acidity

2006 Krug ‘Brut’ Champagne- The 2006 Krug ‘Brut’ Champagne is a resounding success from this warm vintage in Champagne. Both high toned and rich aromatically, kumquat purée with shades of nutmeg infused Challah bread and baked Bosc pear all take their shape in the glass. The rich, almost oily, texture delightfully coats the mid-palate. Ripe white grapefruit, sourdough bread and ginger flavors all sing in harmony on this expressive palate. As good as the texture is, the highly gratifying, minute-long finish, completes this scintillating new wine. While this beautiful vintage Champagne is showing marvelously in its youth, it will have an exceedingly long life in the cellar. Drink 2019-2035- 97

 Very big but extremely muscular, certainly not flamboyant. Yeast and chalk reverberate both on the nose and in the mouth. Only time is missing.
