Krug Rose NV
Krug’s NV Brut Rose ID 212020 – disgorged in spring, 2012, and as always for this cuvee, featuring slightly fewer and younger components than the Grande Cuvee, and an addition of still red Pinot – makes a bright, juicy impression of red raspberry and red currant mingled with fresh lime and tingling with mouthwatering mineral salts. Firmer in feel than the Grande Cuvee and without that bottling’s remarkable juxtaposition of creaminess with brightness, nor indeed its complexity, this finishes with the invigoration of red berry seed-crunching; a piquant hint of orange rind; and fascination of alkaline, saline and chalky nuances.
