Krug Collection 1989
28th April 2015
To the delight of the collectors around the world, a very limited number of bottles of Krug Vintage are kept in the Krug’s cellars. These bottles are tasted and appraised as they wait to blossom into a second life.
Krug 1989 is the result of this contrasting year ending with a very warm summer which gave mature, expressive, long lasting, complete and silky wines. To express the character of this year, the House blended well-structured and persistent Pinot Noirs (47%), rich Chardonnays (29%) and sparkling fresh Meunier (24%). Now, over 22 years later, Krug Collection 1989 sparks new sensations that have developed expressing an outstanding new facet of this Champagne.
Deep intense golden yellow colour that announces maturity, opulence, harmony and elegance. Exotic, complex nose consisting of honey with spices and white fruits, truffle, earth, slightly browned apples, a hint of high-toned flowers, yeast, and a gentle nuttiness in the back-ground.
Deep palate with bright, high youthful tones of pear, green apple, citrus fruits, marmalade, fresh figs and even a touch of earth with a finish which goes on and on with undertones of mineral and spices.
