The Krug Vintage 1998 is a poverful and almost massive Champagne. In the bouquet apple, ripe peach, yeast, white bread with notes of citrus. On the palate it’s dense and powerfull with layers of quite heavy fruit. It’s delicate with a lovely fine mousse, and quite refined with layers of pure ripe fruit. Offering quite more ripe notes and more complexity than the Grande Cuvee. For me it’s however lacking a bit of nerve and freshness compared with great Vintage Krug like 1990, 1988, 1979 and 1973. A outstanding effort for the vintage.
