Champagne Grande Cuvee

Lobenberg 97

Lobenberg: Krug wie immer: Eine perfekt abgestimmte Cuvee. Eleganz und Finesse, zart und doch kraftvoll. 95-97/100

-- WS: This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur and toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028. –AN 97/100

-- Galloni: The NV Grande Cuvée is absolutely stellar. This is one of the very best Grande Cuvées I can remember tasting. The flavors are bright, focused and beautifully delineated throughout, all of which make me think the wine will age well for many, many years. Lemon peel, white flowers, crisp pears, smoke and crushed rocks race across the palate in a vibrant, tense Champagne that epitomizes finesse. This release is based on the 2005 vintage and was disgorged in winter 2012/2013. The blend is: 44% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay and 19% Meunier. 94/100

-- Weinwelt: Sehr frisch, Heu, kandierte Zitrusfrüchte, Estragon, am Gaumen die typisch rassige Krug-Frische, kernig. 94/100

--Parker: Blending 120+ wines and three grape varieties, Krug's deep golden colored NV Grand Cuvée 158ème Édition Brut is based on the glorious 2002 vintage and blended with reserve wines from 14 vintages between 2002 and 1988. It was disgorged in I/2008 (ID 108002), so ten years before I tasted it in April 2018. The nose is incredibly pure, fresh and fine yet complex, with floral, nutty, mocha, brioche, honey and gingerbread notes. Fresh and round on the palate, this is a full, utterly generous yet precise, finessed and highly elegant Grande Cuvée with a firm yet fine grip and a persistent mineral expression in the finish. This is a silky textured high class Champagne that combines generous richness and maturity with purity, finesse and tension. The citrus-flavored finish reveals great complexity and length and makes the 158ème Édition (the first release with the edition number displayed on the bottle) a perfect cuvée for Sunday morning brunch, although there is no need to change the wine for lunch or teatime or for any other day of the week. You just should have some bottles of the 158th edition. 97/100
