Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "Based on the 2008 vintage complemented by some 22% reserve wines, Krug's NV Grande Cuvee 164eme Edition opens in the glass with notes of warm bread, crisp yellow orchard fruit, mandarin, buttered toast and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textural, it's rich and vinous but incisive, with fine depth at the core, tangy acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. (WK)" 97 points John Gilman "The beautiful bouquet is quintessential Grande Cuvee, delivering a constellation of apple, pear, passion fruit, brioche, a complex base of soil tones, fresh almond and a floral topnote redolent of acacia and apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and now wide open in personality, with superb mid-palate depth, lovely soil signature and grip, pinpoint bubbles, zesty acids and a long, seamlessly balanced and beautifully complex finish.
