Krug 1998 offers astonishing purity, precision, elegance and a very long finish. A focus on Chardonnay for Krug's 1998 vintage was an obvious choice due to the outstanding personality of Chardonnay grapes of that year. This vintage is known as our Hommage au Chardonnay as it is only the second ever Krug vintage, after 1981, where Chardonnay dominates.
Deep light golden colour announcing this unique contrast between freshness and maturity.
Expressive aromas of bread, hazelnuts, dried fruit, caramelised orange peel, then cocoa as it warms up, and finally pepper and gingerbread.
Flavours of crystallised citrus fruits, caramelised orange peel, dried fruits, pepper and gingerbread, with a soft, creamy texture.
