TN: 2003 Krug Champagne Vintage Brut (France, Champagne)

  • 2003 Krug Champagne Vintage Brut - France, Champagne (2/12/2017)
    Nice freshness, with lots of bread dough and hazelnut on the nose; with air, some cashews and tangerine. The palate is balanced - not too heavy, not too light - but when served s/b/s with the 2006 Moutard Arbanne Cuvèe VV, this seemed a bit oafish in a way. Still, this was able to stand up to some of bolder flavors of several of the dishes (which was appreciated), but if asked which one I’d prefer to have a second glass of, the Moutard was clearly the more complete and satisfying wine; for me, anyway. May very well be room for some slight improvement with further cellaring. 12,0% abv I.D. 114002

PnP, served non-blind; enjoyed two glasses over the course of an hour.
