You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully.

International Wine CellarRating: 92/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 129, November/December 2006 ($140) Light straw.
