Delivery Details

Krug Collection 1990 Vintage Champagne 75cl is part of the House of Krug’s unique trilogy of three exceptional years: 1998, 1989, 1990: all very different Champagnes. To the delight of collectors around the world, a very limited number of bottles of Krug Vintage are kept in ideal conditions in Krug’s cellars. These bottles are regularly tasted and appraised by Krug Cellar Master, Eric Lebel, until deemed to have blossomed into an outstanding new facet of this Champagne. Krug Vintage will then receive its cork and become Krug Collection. New aromas and flavours surprise while those already present expand. Krug Collection 1990 is thus time’s second revelation of Krug 1990.

At Krug, decisions are made by tasting and Krug Collection 1990 is being revealed before Krug Collection 1988, which has been deemed not quite ready yet. Very Krug! Krug Collection bottles are numbered in descending order per the amount remaining in Krug’s cellars. They are guaranteed by Krug with a certificate of authenticity signed by Oliver Krug, Director of the House and sixth generation of the Krug family, which can be provided upon request.

To express the character of this year, the composition includes powerful Pinot Noir (40%) elegant and round Chardonnays (37%) and very fresh Pinot Meunier (25%).

The year 1990 was a very mild winter with no snow, followed by sharp frosts in early April and a spell of lighter frosts later in the month. June, thought to be cool at times, brought favourable conditions, which heralded a hot, sunny summer. The wines of the year were rich and balanced with great structure.
​At first sight, a deep golden tone hints to both the sunshine and generosity of the year. On the nose, indulgent notes of plum tart, cinnamon, crème pâtissière and gingerbread. On the palate, opulence and creaminess combined with an amazing freshness, creating a lively festival of flavours. These flavours add complexity to the palate: spices, brioche, candied, caramelised, citrus and dried fruit as well as notes of apricot, grapefruit, orange marmalade and lemon pie with lightly toasted nuts and a drizzle of fine liquid honey. Its extraordinary length enhances the experience.
Krug 1990 Vintage Champagne is the perfect accompaniment to a risotto with morel mushrooms, duck with caramelised turnips, or boudin blanc with truffles. For dessert, it pairs beautifully with a tiramisu with gingerbread and bitter orange, cooked apples topped with toasted slivered almonds or simply some slices of aged Comte Cheese.
