A full, rich wine, that brings together the Krug style with its vanilla flavors and power with the great 1990 vintage. After 14 years, this wine is developing still, hinting at toast along with flavors of peach, nuts and a touch of honey. It is intense, very much a food Champagne, but still retains freshness and the potential for further aging.
