K&L Notes

This is fresh product, from the cellars of Krug. Eric Lebel does not think that the 1988 is mature enough yet to be called "collection," but we still managed to get a few bottles out of them! -Gary Westby

    No great vintage from Champagne drinks as well as the 1988's do right now, and I think it is safe to say that this vintage is even better than the flashier 1989 and 1990 harvests that got more press at the time. To drink one of the very best from this harvest is a huge treat, and Champagne, even wine in general does not get better than this 1988 Krug Brut Champagne. Cinnamon and I drank this fabulous bottle, which was a gift from a great customer and friend as the aperitif in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The deep brassy color and generous chanterelle, cream and nutty Pinot Noir cherry nose gave way to a graceful, vivacious impression on the palate- this Champagne has it all. The finish is still with me if I think back to it and is one of the most complete experiences I have had from a wine. Wow!
    Drink from 2013 to 2028
