Unsurprisingly  Eand putting it bluntly  EKrug 169 is sublime. The nose is profound and focused, consisting of sweet breads, biscuits, white flowers and orchard pear. The palate is rich and textured, striking a perfect equilibrium of power and grace, awash with Danish pastries, lemon rind and a wonderful lift of brisk salinity. It all builds to a lengthy crescendo, worthy of a standing ovation. This is arguably the king of multi-vintage blends. It should provide at least a decade of drinking pleasure; it is superb.

Drink now to 2036.
