NV Krug Champagne Brut Rosé- France, Champagne (11/29/2018)
Found this bottle in a grocery store on St. Thomas. Older flower border so it has weathered at least 2 big hurricanes. Color was pristine so I took a chance.
Popped and poured at Thali Indian restaurant. This is outrageously good. It has the complexity and aged notes of the older gold label MV but additional weight and complexity. Showing very young with amble effervescence and acidity. As Krug usually does the acidity ramps up over the next hour and this goes from outrageously good to mind blowing. I wish there was a way to buy cases of this. Ended up pairing this with local spiny lobster curry
