Krug Brut Champagne 2004 - Gift Box
Robert Parker Jr's Wine Advocate: "
From a fresh vintage and internally nicknamed "Luminous Freshness," Krug's light
golden colored 2004 Brut is brighter on the nose than the 2002 that I tasted next to it. There are fresh, candied citrus as well as ripe yellow-fleshed
fruit aromas along with floral and lots of chalky notes on the well-concentrated bouquet. The palate is incredibly fruity, vibrantly fresh yet delicate
and very well balanced and is provided with great elegance, texture, finesse and remarkable mineral tension. The 2004—a blend of Chardonnay (39%),
Pinot Noir (37%) and Pinot Meunier (24%)—is completely built on freshness and taut yet balanced vitality." Jun 2018
At first sight, the beautiful light golden colour promises radiant freshness. The nose begins with an expressive
bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and mirabelle. On the palate, a very balanced
Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey giving way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant
The elegance of Krug 2004 comes after over 12 years in the cellars gaining in harmony, expression and finesse.
Krug 2004 is the last of the second trilogy in the history of the House, the first being 1988, 1989 and 1990 and the second 2002, 2003 and 2004.
As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2004 will continue to gain with the passage of time.'
