Krug 1996

Label 1 slightly scuffed, 1 slightly torn from bottom

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. In 2021, obviously more mature, but still icily classic and imposing - authority in the glass. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 

WA 98 

陳年二十載,依然精彩懾人,這是Krug鉅作,也是Paul Krug仍負責品試的最後一個年份。我一直認為,它與傳奇的1928年在相同階段的時候表現相似。醇厚的熟潤感和酸度互碰交鋒,對比精妙,這也是1996年的特色,而且酒味濃醇、勁度充足,有清涼的橙皮香,口感無瑕細滑。結構優雅。施慧娜(葡萄酒大師M.W.)
