OWC KRUG 'Les Creations' Assortment Cases 2003 and 2008 and Other Krug Availabilities

Posted by Veronica Cheung on

Since the foundation in 1843, Krug has had a longstanding reputation for the quality of its champagnes, most especially for its Vintage and Grand Cuvee productions, with a strong global following from wine connoisseurs and Champagne lovers. Richard Juhlin, the renowned Champagne writer, has always been a fan of Krug. He says that their Champagne "stands for artistry, tradition, craftsmanship and moments of pure pleasure" and "are small masterpieces… If the opportunity arises, never miss the chance to drink a Krug!”.
Today we have some very special opportunities - Krug 'Les Creations' Assortment Cases from the 2003 vintage and another from the 2008 vintage, both packed in original wooden cases which would make for exceptional additions to anyone's collection of fine wines -

Krug Grande Cuvée 159ème Édition (2003 Base)
92pts William Kelley
Based on the 2003 vintage, Krug's NV Grande Cuvée 159ème Édition offers up generous aromas of toasted bread, yellow orchard fruit, mandarin oil, almond paste and candied citrus peel. Medium to full-bodied, rich and open-knit, it's elegantly fleshy, with ripe acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, concluding with a sapid finish. Readers habituated to Krug's calling-card cut and intensity may find it a little soft and one-dimensional, but it's a creditable effort in a challenging year.

Krug Vintage Brut 2003
94pts Antonio Galloni

Soft, supple and delicate in the glass, the 2003 Vintage is super expressive today. Smoke, brioche, apple tart and spice notes flesh out in a resonant, impeccably layered Champagne loaded with personality. I can't think of a young Krug Champagne that delivers this much pure pleasure at such a young stage in its life. The 2003 has developed nicely since I last tasted it about six months ago. This is class personified.

Krug Clos du Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Brut 2003
94+pts Antonio Galloni

The 2003 Clos du Mesnil is insanely beautiful. Vivid, resonant and textured in the glass, the 2003 boasts magnificent depth and pure breed. Since I last tasted it a few months ago, the 2003 has begun to shut down, which is probably a great sign for its future and overall longevity. Hints of smoke, slate and dried pear gradually open up in the glass, but the 2003 mostly stands out for its exceptional finesse.

Krug Vintage Brut 2008
 
Wine notes for each below - 
Krug Grande Cuvée 164eme Édition (2008 Base)
97pts Vinous
A stellar Champagne, Krug's NV Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition, (2008 base vintage) is painfully tight. The 164 is a fabulous wine, but readers should not fall into the temptation of opening a bottle anytime soon. Crushed rocks, slate, mint, sage and white pepper lend striking aromatic brightness. The 164 is just as compelling as it has always been. Even so, it needs time to be at its very best. The 164 is a blend based on 2008, with reserve wines back to 1990.
Krug Vintage Brut 2008
100pts James Suckling
Exceptional freshness with aromas of flinty white stones, flowers, almonds and lemons. There’s hazelnut and strawberry here, too. Complex. The palate has a long, powerful and smooth-honed feel with very assertive citrus flavors, driven by long acidity. A perfect 2008.
