At first sight, the beautiful light golden colour promises radiant freshness.
The nose begins with an expressive bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and mirabelle.
On the palate, a very balanced Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey giving way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant finish.
“Combining delicacy, balance and bountiful citrus of all types, Krug 2004 – named ‘Luminous Freshness’ by the House – evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne.”
After a chill start to the growing season, the beautiful weather from mid-September to early October ensured that 2004 was a generous year following the challenging extremes and small yields of 2003.
Nature’s elation afforded a breadth of choice and the harvested grapes were in very good condition.
For Krug, the year 2004 gave birth to highly expressive, bright, undeniably elegant and discreet wines with a shining structure.
