Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne Vintage 2008

Lobenberg: Einer der besten jemals probierten jungen Champagner, an Länge wohl kaum zu schlagen. Hat alles, was man von einem großen Champagner erwartet und zeigt dies auch. Ein Meisterwerk an Präzision und Intensität. 100/100

Suckling über: Champagne Vintage

-- Suckling: Exceptional freshness with aromas of flinty white stones, flowers, almonds and lemons. There’s hazelnut and strawberry here, too. Complex. The palate has a long, powerful and smooth-honed feel with very assertive citrus flavors, driven by long acidity. A perfect 2008. 100/100

Decanter über: Champagne Vintage

-- Decanter: Just at the beginning of its life, this powerful and structured wine is still a bit restrained, yet even at this stage there are exquisite aromas of ripe pear, marzipan and spice. Although the aromas are still not very expressive, the texture and feel on the palate give the impression of immense potential. There is plenty of extract and thrilling acidity, but always in perfect balance. As Cavil notes: 'This is a wine marked by verticality and intensity'. The wine was disgorged with an extra-brut dosage in the summer of 2020. This will live for 50 years at least. 99/100

Wine Spectator über: Champagne Vintage

-- Wine Spectator: There's a supernova of sensation with each sip of this powerful 2008 Champagne, starting with the vivid streak of mouthwatering acidity that drives a rich panoply of flavor across the palate. Notes of ripe black currant, Mandarin orange peel and grilled nut are accented by hints of candied ginger, briny oyster shell, verbena and ground cardamom spice. This burns bright from start to finish, yet its fine integration and lovely, raw silk-like mousse pull it all together into a seamless, vibrant package. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Disgorged Autumn 2019. Drink now through 2038. 99/100

Meininger über: Champagne Vintage

-- Meininger: Kandierte Zitrusfrüchte, Chardonnay ist präsent, Grapefruit, Zesten, Pistazie, Fenchelsamen, Estragon; am Gaumen wie ein Schwert, geradlinig, pikant, von reifer Zitrusfrucht umhüllte Säure, feine kalkige Länge, geröstete Körner, entfaltet sich subtil am Gaumen, sehr attraktive Herbheit. 98/100

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.
