Wine Spectator:  "A superb Champagne and still youthful. Honey, ginger, lemon confit, coffee and mineral aromas and flavors come to mind, all kept focused by a firm, tightly wound structure. The finish is where its pedigree shines through, lingering like warm gingerbread and coffee."  Oct 2003

Vinous:  "The 1988 Krug makes for a fabulous start. Tasted from a perfect bottle, the 1988 remains bright and focused, with all of the energy of this great vintage very much on display. Time has naturally softened some of the contours and added a good bit of nuance, but the 1988 Krug remains a Champagne of crystalline precision. I loved it."  Jun 2018 

Distillery:  "Initially labeled a shy and quiet vintage, the 1988 thrived in Krug’s cellars. It has come into its own after 25 years, revealing its full unique acidity, exquisite structure and crystalline finish.This sensational champagne is full of decadent fruit and spice – and will continue to develop with age. This vintage reflects the best of Krug’s savoir-faire.

A blend of Pinot Noir (50%), Chardonnay (32%) and Meunier (18%) grapes from plots across 21 Champagne villages, the 1988 was created in a year of near-perfect conditions. A slow maturation period allowed the sugar levels of the grapes to develop steadily and the acidity levels to build. The result is a champagne of balance, with freshness and maturity working in harmony."
