Krug 1996

In individual coffrets, opened by Sotheby's

On its 20th birthday (oh, that it was also mine!), still stupendously impressive, a monumental Krug and the last year when Paul Krug was part of the tasting team. I always thought that it might bear a resemblance to the legendary 1928 when it was at a similar age. It has that great tension between ripeness and acidity that is a mark of 1996, plus vinosity and power, icy orange zests and seamless silk. Sleek structure in liquid form. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
