Wow!  Its vintage Krug, but still, wow!  This is still young but it is opening up now and really hitting its stride.  It has a couple of decades left or more, depending how you like older Champagne.  Light golden in color.  A nice mousse with lots of tiny bubbles.  This is a big wine.  The nose has toast, slight ginger, cherries and a slight hay note.  On the palate, this has a racy backbone of acidity.  At the same time, a broad palate with great complexity.  Some tart fruit on top with some cherry parfait in the mid-palate and underlying it all, great minerality and slight salinity.  An incredibly long finish.  It got better with air.  It flirt with perfection and the best bottles may reach that level.  Would easily go with almost any food.
