Starting to show well, but obviously has miles to go. The vintage works well for the classic Krug style as this is opulent and loaded with rich toasty fruit showing apple, citrus and toffee. Supported by great acidity and has barely started to develop.

Last night’s “Evening With Krug” event, where they officially released their 2006 vintage. Beautiful evening with many different Krug offerings paired with a delicious meal. The reason for the occasion. Loved trying this next to the ‘04 as they are completely different beasts at the moment. This is strutting Krug’s classic style of round, rich and opulent profile. The warm vintage has this totally open for business now, but obviously only getting better. Bakers yeast, toffee, and lemon pastry aromatics. Very fresh and inviting on the palate revealing golden caramel dipped apples, honeysuckle and nougat. Delicious.

Very young at this point...medium gold in glass with hints of tobacco and leather notes from oak. A bit tight initially, the wine opens expansively in the mouth with apple, banana, brioche, and juicy ripe pear. Huge future predicted, but on this day was an also-ran. Hands off for a few years.

Will take this over the 2004 vintage every day of the week right now. Fresh and nimble

Classy Krug vintage. Expansive nose with a great taste and a finish that just goes and goes. Fruity and perhaps dominated by the Pinot but still balanced superbly. Drinking well now but, like most Krugs, should improve with age.
