1990 Krug "Collection" Brut Champagne (direct from Krug 2018)

SKU #1272511 97 points Vinous

 Krug's just-released 1990 Collection is magnificent. Remarkably fresh for a 26 year-old wine, the 1990 Collection captures the Krug house style at its very best. Floral notes meld into hints of apricot, chamomile, orchard fruit, vanillin and sweet spices. On the palate, the 1990 is creamy, vivid and super-expressive, but what is most intriguing is how fresh the Collection is relative to Vintage Champagne, which has always been a heavier, more oxidative wine. Readers who can find the 1990 should not hesitate, as it is stellar. 97+ (AG)  (12/2016)

 I loved the 1990 Krug, which shows the richness and power this cuvée is known for. Offering a medium gold color and rich, full-bodied notes of brioche, toasted nuts, and crème caramel, it’s deep, concentrated, and evolved, and ready to go.  (2/2018)

Tasting this with the Krug team at the new Krug house in Reims is an experience I won't soon forget. Arnauld Lallement, the chef from L’Assiette Champenois cooked for us, and this was the vintage highlight of the evening. When a Champagne has the freshness of youth, combined with the savory, white truffle complexity of age you can say that it has it all. Words fall short with a great wine like this... The 1990 Krug Collection can stand on the table with anything.
Drink from 2017 to 2040

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
