Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator: 96 Points
Gorgeous, exuding aromas and flavors of baked black currant, toasted hazelnut and coffee liqueur, along with subtle hints of elderflower, oyster shell and white truffle. The rich profile relies on soft, citrus peel acidity, as well as a tang of salinity for freshness and balance. The plush, creamy texture feels like cashmere on the palate. A beauty at any age. Disgorged fall 2017. Drink now through 2028. AN


Robert Parker: 98 Points
Krug's 1988 Brut has long numbered among my very favorite vintages for this house, with the best bottles flirting with a three-digit score. Offering up complex aromas of apricot, citrus oil, candied peal, toasted brioche and honeycomb, it's full-bodied, concentrated and incisive, with a deep, layered and tightly wound core, racy acids and a searingly chalky finish. If on release the 1988 got less attention than the more immediate, head-turning 1990 and 1989 vintages, with time it is proving itself the most serious of those three consecutive releases.
