Krug Clos du Mesnil 1990
|Score: 95||Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, September 2006|
The much anticipated release of Krug’s single-vineyard masterpiece meets expectations. The combination of Rémi and Henri Krug’s 4.6-acre jewel surrounded by the village of Mesnil, the superb 1990 vintage and the brothers’ attention to detail result in this profound Champagne. A seductive mosaic of biscuit, honey and walnut oil lead to baking bread and citrus in this masculine, youthful Champagne. Very tightly wound and bracing for the moment, this needs time (and food) to open up and reveal all its charm. More muscular and rigid than the elegant ’88. Best 2005 through 2025."
