At first sight, the intense golden colour promises round generosity. Very expressive and indulgent nose revealing yellow and dried fruit, toasted almonds, hazelnut, maple syrup, meringue and mandarin liqueur. On the palate it is generous, deep, ample and fresh with aromatic persistence and a long finish. It has notes of nougat, frangipane, pastry, tarte tatin, plenty of citrus with a beautiful finish on pink grapefruit skin. Krug 2006 is a delectable match for all cuisines, especially the most aromatic. Dishes with character such as tajine with lemon confit, ratatouille, slow-roasted leg of lamb, vegetable tian, game, foie gras, flavourful fish or duck breast grilled over grape vines will be raised to another level by Krug 2006.

Krug's superb 2006 Brut, which will be released this year, numbers among the vintage's high points, unfurling in the glass with a complex and expressive bouquet of tarte tatin, warm biscuits, ginger, honeycomb, dried white flowers, smoke and toasted nuts. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and textural, with a fleshy attack that reflects the warm vintage but segues into a beautifully vibrant palate that's deep and surprisingly reserved, displaying superb definition, delicately chalky structure and a long, lively finish. While this is a powerful vintage Krug, it's also beautifully balanced and will give immense pleasure for decades.
