KRUG COLLECTION 1990
At first sight, a deep golden tone hints to both the sunshine and generosity of the year.
On the nose, indulgent notes of plum tart, cinnamon, crème pâtissière and gingerbread.
On the palate, opulence and creaminess combined with an amazing freshness, a lively festival of flavours: spices, brioche, candied, caramelized, citrus and dried fruit as well as notes of apricot, grapefruit, orange marmalade and lemon pie with lightly toasted nuts and a drizzle of fine liquid honey. Its extraordinary length enhances the experience.Krug Collection 1990 is the result of a classically contrasted Champagne climate: a particularly mild winter with no snow, followed by sharp frosts in early April and a spell of lighter frosts later in the month.
CELLAR MASTER, KRUG
June, though cool at times, brought favorable conditions, which heralded a hot, sunny summer. The wines of the year were rich and balanced with great structure.
To express the character of this year, the composition includes powerful Pinot Noir (40%), elegant and round Chardonnays (37%), and very fresh Meunier (23%).
Now, over 25 years after its creation, Krug Collection 1990 beams with astonishing youth and exuberance.
A blend of wines with fruit, great structure, elegance and distinction, Krug Collection 1990 has a new adventure to live and share.
Krug Collection 1990 is part of the House of Krug’s unique trilogy of three exceptional years: 1988, 1989, 1990 - all very different Champagnes.
At Krug, decisions are made by tasting - Krug Collection 1990 is being revealed before Krug Collection 1988, as it has not quite been deemed ready yet.
