Krug's superb 2006 Brut, which will be released this year, numbers among the vintage's high points, unfurling in the glass with a complex and expressive bouquet of tarte tatin, warm biscuits, ginger, honeycomb, dried white flowers, smoke and toasted nuts. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and textural, with a fleshy attack that reflects the warm vintage but segues into a beautifully vibrant palate that's deep and surprisingly reserved, displaying superb definition, delicately chalky structure and a long, lively finish. While this is a powerful vintage Krug, it's also beautifully balanced and will give immense pleasure for decades. 2020-2045

Pale straw colour. Rich, expansive and biscuity on the nose, there are layers of yellow orchard fruits and lemon curd underneath buttery toasted brioche. The palate is broad and creamy, the fine but generous mousse providing ample structure and weight. Very vinous, with Puligny-like acidity but Meursault-like nuttyness, this is open and expansive, finishing with a peacock-tails' flourish. Long, layered and complex, this Krug is already drinking superbly and will have a long, open drinking window.

ID 118014. To be released in October 2019. (With potential stress because the 2019 harvest is likely to be so late.) Saved by a fine August. This was assistant winemaker Julie Cavil’s first tasting of the still base wines and is therefore her first known vintage on the market! Chef de Caves Eric Lebel was ill that summer. Outstanding Pinot Noir. Quite rich and polished. No hint of astringency. But zesty on top and with lots of undertow. (I’ve never heard anyone say of a Krug vintage that it shouldn’t have been released.) Long with a particularly rich finish. 2019-2030
