KRUG 2004 Champagne

R4,140.00

Combining delicacy, balance and bountiful citrus of all types, Krug 2004 – named ‘Luminous Freshness’ by the House – evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne.

After a chill start to the growing season, the beautiful weather from mid-September to early October ensured that 2004 was a generous year following the challenging extremes and small yields of 2003.
Nature’s elation afforded a breadth of choice and the harvested grapes were in very good condition.

For Krug, the year 2004 gave birth to highly expressive, bright, undeniably elegant and discreet wines with a shining structure.

Paying close attention to every vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine allowed Eric Lebel to identify the music of the year. He brought it to life by creating a composition marked by elegance and bountiful citrus.
Krug 2004 is a dialogue between shining Chardonnays (39%) and the backbone of Pinot Noir (37%) combined with the vivacity, tension and citrus notes of Meunier (24%).
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.

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 finish.
