    Krug Vintage Champagne 1996
    ocb
    Bottle (6)


    "A wine from the foremost vintage from the foremost producer can of course not be other than fantastically good. It is however easy to be disappointed when expectations have been raised too high. I was offered my first bottle of this stately but immature wine by the Danish wine-loving couple Peter and Torun Kirk during an unforgettable dinner at their villa in Copenhagen. We drank it side by side with an absolutely wonderful bottle of 1988 Krug that out-classed the '96 in the degree of pure pleasure. It must however be said that the '96 is going to be a heroic wine though it still has a very long time to go yet. It is reminiscent of the '28 and also partly of the '61 in its compact costume and with its youthfully peevish acid. A monumental construction still at the model stage. Store!!!!" (95 pts. Richard Juhlin, June 2014)
