1996 KRUG ‘CLOS de MESNIL’  | 100CH  | TASTINGNOTE ‘This legendary vintage was harvested on the 23 and 24 September, giving only the equivalent of 9,800 bottles to the whole, wide yearning world. It makes one feel vertiginous to know that the whole champagne world is waiting for this assessment, especially if I do not really feel that I can make any decisive assessment. This wine is assuredly as tough as the 96 Salon, but at the same time oily and opulent, which leads to conclusions that cry out for early drinking. Nothing could be more erroneous. If one wants to experience the entire spectrum one will have to wait for at least 15 years after the launch. The elegance is tremendous. Starting to be fantastic in 2010.’ |  RJpoints 98(99)
