    Winemaker's Notes:

    Krug releases vintage wines in only truly great years. This Krug 1989 explodes on the palate with tremendous depth and complexity. The first impression is intense, yet it develops in the glass with delicacy, revealing lightly spiced notes of dried figs and ripe quince. Underlined by a superb structure, this wine maintains a remarkable freshness for its long aging.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very racy and tightly knit, this shows beautiful focus on the details, from the lacy texture to the vibrant acidity to the notes of cardamom and tea rose accenting finely meshed flavors of freshly ground coffee, honeycomb, kumquat, oyster shell and a hint of dried apricot.

    This is a classic food Champagne, hugely rich, toasty, generous. Yes, there is acidity and minerality, but these individual factors are less important than the overall opulence of this intense wine. It is still amazingly young, fresh and vibrant, but also so powerful.

    Vinous, minerally nose dominated by toffee and apple. Mouthfilling, quite dry and very intensely flavored, with penetrating yet harmonious acidity. Offers the exotic fruit quality of the vintage but has the minerally, steely spine to handle the very ripe flavors. Very long and firm. Impressively fine for the year.
