Krug Vintage 1990

Champagne, France

Gift Boxed


"I don't know how many years I've waited to try this much-talked-about wine. Now, at the age of fourteen years, Krug finally feels the 1990 is ready to meet the public. You don't have to be an Einstein to figure out that the vintage and the house's character would marry in perfect fashion. The wine is already monumental, with a style that lies somewhere between the acidly classic '88 and the generous, honey-tasting '89. To be honest, the acidity is high, but the fruit is so rich that the acidity is beautifully enveloped. Warmly toasted, almost burned, smoky aromas are present, together with notes of orchids, vanilla, and dried fruit—making one think of an older Krug of warmer years. It will probably take another seven or eight years before the wine has really reached its peak, but in December 2007 greatness and generosity had already made their appearance." Richard Juhlin
