Lighter in color than the 2002 Dom next to it. Nice nose but lacking complexity initially. With air this shows citrus, white stone, some brioche toast and some oatmeal. Looking forward to trying this again in a few years.

Not too ostentatious. Delicious, powerful with some savory green notes.

Happy 8th Anniversary to the love of my life!! We’re celebrating with a bottle of Krug Vintage 2004

To underscore the unique features of each Vintage Champagne, Krug assembles a blend of expressive, representative wines from the year and then matures the final product for at least 10 years before release. This particular wine spent 12 years on the lees. It was disgorged in 2016.

The 2004 Vintage was named “Luminous Freshness” paying homage to the summer sunrise and vibrant citrus notes it exudes. This blend consists of 39% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir, and 24% Meunier varieties, each playing a role in the final style.

With a golden hue, this wine offers developed aromas of baked apple, lemon peel, grapefruit pith, dried white blossom, blanched almond, brioche, toast, marzipan, and wet slate. It’s balanced and complex, with a lingering finish and delicate, long-lasting mousse.

This wine pairs wonderfully with the slow-cooked halibut in a creamy, fennel and lemon sauce alongside a zucchini and squash salad. The intensity and richness of the wine and food work well in concert.

Absolutely wonderful. Has room to go for years and years. Crazy long finish - one of the longest I’ve had for a champagne. Quite rich and yeasty in a great way. Some white fruit and great acid and medium bubbles. Really delicious. Perfect pairing with fried chicken, and a fun bottle to celebrate our son’s 6 month birthday!
