KRUG 1998 75cl Vintage Champagne with Gift Box

£199.95

Weather: The weather in 1998 was classic: very contrasted as is characteristic of Champagne, with a particularly hot August, the hottest since 1962. This was followed by heavy rain in early September, then dry, mild weather during harvest. For the House of Krug, a focus on Chardonnay for the 1998 vintage was an obvious choice, due to the outstanding personality of the white grapes that year. This vintage is known as “Hommage au Chardonnay” as it is only the second Krug vintage (after 1981) where Chardonnay dominates.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Predominately Premier & Grand Cru | Chardonnay: Côte des Blancs, Trépail | Pinot Noir: Montagne de Reims | Meunier: Leuvrigny
Grape Varieties: 47% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir, 16% Meunier
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l

Tasting Note: Krug 1998 offers astonishing purity, precision, elegance and a very long finish. Expressive aromas of bread, hazelnut and orange peel develop into flavours of citrus fruits, dried fruits and gingerbread. This is a vintage with incredible ageing potential: expect this to develop even deeper levels of complexity with time.

Krug 1998 75cl bottles are presented in a superb branded magnetic gift box (as shown in the picture on the left).
