Description

We are very pleased to have sourced an immaculate parcel of one of the world's greatest champagnes in an outstanding vintage: 1996 Krug.  If Dom Perignon is Champagne's Lafite, Krug is Champagne's Latour; there is a regality and class about this wine that is unmistakable. Their 1996 is as outstanding as one would expect and the critics are united on this one.

A bottle opened in the office has split opinions, though only on when to drink it.  It does show some development, and is very attractive now for some, though personally I would give this a few more years.  Spectacular.
