Krug 2004 Vintage Champagne 75cl
Krug 2004 Vintage Champagne is the latest vintage and is the expression of the year 2004 captured by Krug. Combining delicacy, balance and bountiful citrus notes, Krug 2004, named "Luminous Freshness by the House, evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne. This bottle spent at least 13 years in Krug’s cellars, receiving its cork in spring 2014.
The year 2004 called for patience with a crisp winter and chill spring keeping temperatures in Champagne cool for an exceptionally long time. May brought a gentle warmth to the region and in late summer the grapes ripened perfectly in the radiant sunshine. The beautiful weather in harvest time from mid-September to early October made 2004 a generous year following the challenging extremes and limited yields of 2003.Read more...

The nose begins with an expressive bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and mirabelle. On the palate, a very balanced Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey giving way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant finish.
Nature’s elation afforded a breadth of choice in 2004, offering more characterful yet mature grapes than any previous harvest. For Krug, the year 2004 gave birth to highly expressive, bright and undeniably elegant and discreet wines with shining structure.
Krug 2004 is the last of the second trilogy in the history of the House, the first being 1988, 1989 and 1990 and the second being 2002, 2003 and 2004.
