Tasting Notes

The 1964 Krug Private Cuvée, which was renamed Grande Cuvée from 1978, is still vibrant and engaging on the nose, with scents of lemon rind and baked bread, followed by a light metallic note akin to antique cutlery rather than stainless steel. It has wonderful definition and potency. The palate is a different story. Surprisingly malic on the entry, it is dominated by a sharp – verging on shrill – bead of acidity that I feel compromises the finish. That’s a pity as the entry is irresistible with its subtle hazelnut and loamy tones. Don’t get me wrong - I loved this Krug and it deserves applause since it showed little sign of age and yet…curiously, it left me wanting more.

Score: 93
