Krug Grande Cuveé 164ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend NV

$195

Vinous, 97 Points. Krug's NV Grand Cuve 164 Edition is a total knockout. Based on the 2008 vintage, the 164th Edition shows all the crystalline tension and energy that is such a signature of the year. At times, the 164 reminds me of the 2008 vins clairs I tasted after harvest. The flavors are brisk, delineated and pulsing with energy, while the more oxidative notes that are such a signature of Krug Champagnes are not especially evident. A wine of total pedigree and class, the 164 reminds me of some of the great Grand Cuves of the 1960s and 1970s I have been lucky to taste over the years. No Champagne lover will want to be without this spectacular, captivating wine. All that said, readers should be patient, as the 164 is painfully young, austere and in need of serious cellaring

A wonderful open nose. Composed lean lemon with a steely backbone, chalk. This is young but so splendid and dazzling now. I should wait, but this is spectacular now. All that flinty sharp structure but amazing fruit

As the famous quote goes...“I could not live without Champagne. In victory I deserve it, in defeat I need it.” I can relate to that quote more than I’d like to. This time last year, we were in defeat, grieving the loss of our first born who passed away shortly after birth. Fast forward a year, and this bottle was opened at the hospital this weekend after the birth of my wife and I’s daughter. We are able to celebrate this victory with more joy knowing everyone is healthy, and can’t wait to pop many more bottles at all future birthdays and life events! Based on the ID, this bottle belongs to the 164éme edition, so the base of this wine is 2008 (youngest) with Reserve going back to 1990 (oldest). From half bottle. Sweet golden apple, honeycomb, brioche and smoked marshmallows aromatics. Great acidity and structure as expected...toffee, caramelized nougat, “oxidative” like sherry/nutty notes, but very bright. Not as dark or rich as previous Grande Cuvee offerings, but it works well here. Lingering finish that shows all the glorious layers Krug can offer. Splendid.

Really bright and crystalline. Lifted lemon and slate. Tight with acidity fine and high wire tension. Lovely stuff. Young.

Very bright and lifted and mineral. Great definition and real depth lurking beneath. A fine mousse with electric tension and acidity. Tightly wound but all in place. Great stuff. 2008 base.
