Critic Notes

"Light yellow. Powerful, complex bouquet evokes fresh peach, pear, floral honey, green almond and smoky minerals. Deep, palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit flavors show outstanding vivacity for a hot vintage, picking up ginger and talc notes with air. The strikingly long, sappy finish features zesty orange pith, smoky minerals and an echo of honeysuckle. I'd be in no rush to drink this one. Speaking of waiting, I had the chance to revisit the 2000 Vintage Krug and it has begun to pick up the smoky, weighty and nutty character that long-time fans of this producer crave. It's still plenty young but already unmistakably Krug, with a chewy texture and a sexy floral nuance dominating right now." (Dec 2014) www.vinous.com

Krug
We were delighted to welcome Olivier Krug to our offices last week for an eye-opening tasting of some of his wines.  Olivier spends much of his time pressing the flesh: few do it with such knowledge and with such genuine enthusiasm. There is an insiders’ secret about Krug.  Simple, yet true.  And something I’ve always believed. The general perception is that ...

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay – A Remarkable Tasting
Every now and then, an invitation arrives that can’t be ignored and last week, I was fortunate enough to be invited by Krug to join them at their launch of the 2000 Krug Clos d’Ambonnay at Andrew Fairlie’s new Secret Garden in the Perthshire Countryside. Andrew Fairlie is Scotland’s most celebrated chef and his restaurant at Gleneagles is the only ...
