Krug 1988
PERFECT BALANCE
?

KRUG 1988 IS AN EXQUISITE CHAMPAGNE OF EXTREME ELEGANCE AND REFINEMENT. IT IS THE STORY OF A YEAR WITHOUT EXCESSES THAT CREATED THE CONDITIONS FOR A SLOW MATURATION RESULTING IN A PERFECT BALANCE OF FRESHNESS AND FRUIT. KRUG 1988 WILL TAKE A WHILE TO EMERGE AS A KRUG COLLECTION AND WILL BE ALWAYS A TIMELESS IMPRESSIVE CHAMPAGNE. KRUG 1988 IS A TREASURE TROVE OF EMBLEMATIC SAVOIR-FAIRE FROM THE HOUSE OF KRUG.

Tasting notes

Upright structure and the solid acidity not found in particularly hot years, Krug 1988 reveals sharp purity. In the mouth, it is full of sensations: orange blossom, dry figs, ripe quince, and mild spices such as cinnamon and ginger.

With a crystal finish and lingering palate, Krug 1988 is a treasure trove of emblematic savoir-faire from the House of Krug.

Portrait of Eric Lebel
The year 1988 alternated perfectly between heat and rain until harvest which took place between September 26th and October 6th, a year without excesses that created the conditions for a slow maturation keeping a very high level of freshness.

The result was extremely balanced harvested grapes, a perfect equilibrium between freshness and maturity.

Being 1988 such a particular year, the creation of Krug 1988 was obvious.

Krug 1988 is the blend of very refined and promising wines with solid structure, high freshness, extreme elegance, directness, purity, crystal and sharp finish. Krug 1988 is the blend of very expressive plot’s wines of Pinot Noirs (50%), Chardonnays (32%) and Meuniers (18%) from 21 villages, giving birth to a reserved, elegant, very classy and stylish vintage.

Krug 1988 stayed a bit close for quite some time, very discrete, nearly austere at the beginning but elegance and refinement have always been tangible.

Today after more than 25 years in Krug’s cellars it is entering into a new, expressive phase, it is opening up beautifully all that was hidden and shy and needed coaxing is now revealing itself. I am confident this Vintage will take a while to emerge as a Krug Collection and will be always timeless impressive Champagne.

Krug 1988 is a treasure trove of emblematic savoir-faire from the House of Krug.
