Suckling über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: Instantly recognizable aromatic depth and complexity here. The DNA of Grande Cuvée looms large on the nose with fresh-baked brioche, crushed almond, subtle baking spices and stony notes, as well as an array of stone fruit. The palate delivers a wide spectrum of citrus, from lemon to orange to grapefruit and beyond. The chardonnay really impresses in a long, concentrated mode. 43% pinot noir, 35% chardonnay and 22% pinot meunier. It contains 40% reserve wine and is composed of 146 different components from 11 different vintages, the youngest being 2013 and the oldest 2000. Drink or hold. 97/100

-- Falstaff: Helles Goldgelb, silberfarbene Reflexe, feines, gut eingebundenes Mousseux.

Stoffig, Nuancen von Marzipan, reifer gelber Apfel, ein Hauch von Quitten, finessenreiche Säurestruktur, salzige Mineralität, zitroniger Hauch im Abgang, feiner Blütenhonig im Nachhall. 97/100

Parker über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Parker: Based on the 2013 vintage and complemented by some 40% reserve wines dating back to 2000, Krug's newly released NV Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition is showing very nicely, unfurling in the glass with notes of citrus oil, buttered toast, dried apricot, warm biscuits and marmalade. Medium to full-bodied, deep and incisive, it's a tauter, more chiseled rendition of Grande Cuvée by comparison with the richer, more textural and more demonstrative 168ème Édition (based on the 2012 vintage) that preceded it; but its bright spine of acidity is nicely cloaked in fruit. Concluding with a long and sapid finish, this is a very classically balanced Champagne that will reward bottle age. 96+/100

Decanter über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Decanter: Soft burnished gold, with a fine and persistent bead. The nose is suitably encyclopaedic, Mirabelle plum, fig and lemon pith and then hints of almond and brioche, the older reserve wines keen to contribute too. Beneath it all steely foundations, an edifice for posterity, not immediately flamboyant but magisterial in its grip and liminal potential. Deft acidity over untroubled waters, with orange groves and a spice market espied from the prow. All is set fair for this voyage. Impressive length. 96/100

Wine Spectator über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Wine Spectator: A vivid Champagne, with a chiseled frame of acidity and a chalky underpinning cloaked in a fine mousse that caresses the palate with its gossamer-like texture. Lovely aromas of coffee liqueur, anise and verbena accent the layered flavors of tangerine, Macadamia nut, brioche and ripe plum, a profile that expands on the long, mouthwatering finish. There's power and expressive character to this, with a delicacy to its fine integration and length. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. 96/100

Meininger über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Meininger: Helle Nase, frische und kandierte Zitrusfrüchte, ganz leicht rauchig, nur dezent torfig, geröstete Pistazie; sehr feine, fast zarte Perlage, die Zitrusaromatik zieht sich durch, feine Kalkigkeit, saftig, jederzeit von frischem Säurespiel begleitet, eher der schlankere Typ, braucht dennoch ein größeres Glas, um sich voll zu entfalten, sehr elegant. 96/100

Wine Enthusiast über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Wine Enthusiast: Pinot richness dominates this Champagne. It gives the dense texture as well as the ripe white fruits that show signs of toastiness as they mature. This full-bodied Champagne is ready to drink. 95/100

Vinum über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Vinum: Insgesamt 146 Wines aus elf Jahren von unterschiedlichen Lagen stammend geben dieser Édition ihren ganz eigenen Charakter der ikonischen Lagen des Hauses Krug. Sehr fein mit floralen Noten, etwas getrocknete Früchte und ein Hauch Mandel. Am Gaumen aussdrucksstark mit Röstnoten, etwas Quitte und Mandelcreme. Zitrusfrucht und Limette verleihen die Frische und enden in einem animierenden, langen Finale. 18,5/20

Jancis Robinson über: Champagne Grande Cuvee 169 Edition in Geschenkpackung Flaschengärung

-- Jancis Robinson: Deep copper gold. Tiny, tiny bead. Much more obvious acidity, age and (lightly oaky?) savour on the nose than Cristal 2013. Aérien with blossomy notes with a little mandarin. Very marked acidity on the palate. A real wake-up call! Sleek and fresh and truly spring-like with a light yeasty note on the very long finish. The most pleasure to be had initially is in the nose and the finish. The palate is still a bit of shock. This should have a long life. Bone-dry finish and playing the intellectual card. Throbs on the palate with all its vibrancy. Long. Tighter than the 168ème Édition. Structure dominates fruit. 18,5/20

Krug

Wie kaum ein anderes Haus steht der Name Krug für die qualitative Speerspitze der Champagne. Reine Handarbeit, sehr geringe Mengen, immer extrem rar. Absolut großartiger Stoff, den diese renommierte, boutique-artige Manufaktur in Reims produziert.
