Krug Grande Cuvée 168ème Édition (168th Edition) NV Review

Every year, this unique offering is created using 120 wines from 10 different vintages proving that opulent and memorable Champagne doesn’t need to be a vintage expression. In all, the house’s extensive library of reserve wines makes up 42 percent of the final blend, bringing depth and distinct character to the forefront. The 168th Edition shows unmistakable oxidative character, enamoring wine geeks (especially those with an affinity for manzanilla). The nose and palate are both highly expressive, with wafts of dried lemon peel and candied ginger leading to flavors of toasted nuts, brioche and a hint of honey.
