Lot #280. Krug Clos du Mesnil Blanc de Blancs 1979

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 99 RJ.
"A perfect Blanc de Blancs and . . . first try by the Krug family. The nose lives more on finesse than richness. Juicy Cox's Orange apples, Cointreau, and acacia honey raise high expectations for the taste, and they are triumphantly met. There is a wonderfully exotic richness that reminds me of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, but with an aftertaste even richer in glycerol honey sweetness. One of the true milestones of wine history." Richard Juhlin, The Richard Juhlin Champagne Club, Nov 2015
Notes: #14525.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,000
