97-99 pts #wine review – @Krug 2004 Brut #Champagne – “Luminous Freshness”

Krug 2004 is a blend of 39% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir, and 24% Pinot Meunier. The nose shows buttered croissant, white cherry, fresh cut hay and hazelnut.  Fresh beyond words, the crispness in this lively wine persists for minutes on the palate leaving the taster with the sensation of perpetual palate refreshment.  With each sip every taste bud jumps when the fine mouse carries in the bright fruit acidity and layers of flavours.  The flavour enhancing salinity of Krug 2004 makes this an exceptional wine to pair with any dish from seafood to the richest casseroles.  Showing beautifully now with only subtle indications of its 13 years of aging, I'd recommend medium to long term cellaring and enjoying it between 2020 and 2034.  For life's most special moments this Krug would be a perfect choice! Tasted December 2017. 97-99 points.  Matt Steeves - http://www.quercusvino.ca
