Re: Krug 167e

Having had all the editions and plenty of back non coded Krugs, I am not as thrilled with 166&167. Time will benefit both of them and hopefully they will turn. When I tasted the 167 it just hit the shore, so maybe it had some bottle shock. Some would argue that the NV Krug is best in crappy years as...

When I tried the 15 soon after arriving (2 weeks later) I wasn’t as thrilled as some previous versions. I love them all for the price but some have warranted me wine searching and sending my friends in other states to buy up the remaining bottles for $30ish! Bottle shock possibly but glad to hear it...

Re: Krug vs. Cristal

Depends on what house style you like...For me I am a Krug guy but the 08 Cristal is supposedly bonkers hence all the hype. Have a bunch just haven’t cracked as Cristal and Dom P release wines very early on and most people drink them before they should. You also have to take in account what wines are...
