(1985 Vintage) Elegant, refined and firmly fruity, showing complex aromas of toast, fig, almond and pear, backed by ripe apple, fig and nut flavors and supported by refreshing acidity. This is harmoniously balanced - an outstanding Champagne.
solid fine bubbles within a dark golden colour. typical krug bouquet still forming but the impact and finish shows much more maturity than krug 1990, 1995 and 1996. very savoury. uncle poon noted a slight bitter finish. uncle Bok noted a dryness to the krug. wonderful! 01/15 alkaff Krug opened after half hour, matching tuna and producing caramel undertones. Improved immensely thereafter with food. Takes s bit of time to be ready. But ends very well.
