Composed around the harvest of 2004 with no less than 121 wines from 12 different vintages dating back as far as 1990, Krug's NV Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition (ID 214025) is in brilliant shape today and a great Champagne. Composed of 44% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Meunier, this intensely yellow-golden shining cuvée is very deep and complex on the rich, perfectly ripe and balanced nose where ripe stone fruit aromas such as peaches and mirabelles are displayed in the first moments along with some dashes of fresh lime or lemon juice on a lobster fished out of the Atlantic just a short while before. After a while, beautiful iodine and algal expressions intertwine with mussels and limestone notes on the fascinatingly pure, dense and mineral nose. The palate is intense, round, lush and almost rich, but it has the lifting finesse and mineral freshness of the 2004 ingredient, which leads to a very long yet highly delicate and perfectly balanced finish with stimulating salinity and mineral structure. Tasted in New York in November 2018, four and a half years after the disgorgement.

At the beginning of November 2018 I met Olivier Krug early on a Friday morning (even before breakfast) in New York's beautiful Simon & The Whale hotel. If you get the chance to have some Krug cuvées, you will not miss your breakfast too, I suppose. Olivier insisted on naming the 166th edition of the Krug Grande Cuvée as "166ème Édition" and not as "Number 166" or just "Krug 166." Olivier said that "the cuvée represents the history of Krug and is the result of blending potentially 250 base wines from a time span of 20 or 25 years." He also doesn't like to speak of the 2004 as a vintage Champagne or of the two Clos as single-vineyard wines. "Single-vineyard wines are not our objective, nor are vintage Champagnes," he explains. "We produce Krug, and only the repeated blind tastings of all our 250 or so base wines by five to seven tasters decides which cuvées we are going to produce. If the vintage doesn't reflect the soul of the vintage, we will not produce it. If we don't detect the extraordinary quality and singularity of the one or the other Clos, we will not produce it. The two Clos exist because of Krug. There wouldn't be any Clos without Krug," Olivier added, underlining that there is no hierarchy in the Krug offerings. The tastings of the 2004 vins clairs, however, crystallized the 2004 Brut because it represents the "luminous freshness" of the vintage, as Olivier describes it. Our morning tasting started with the still very young and uneasy or somewhat restless Krug Grande Cuvée 166ème Édition, which was followed by the 2004 Krug. In turn, the 20014 Krug was followed by the outstanding Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition, which is predominantly based on the 2004 harvest and shows the complexity of the cuvée combined with the purity and freshness of the 2004 vintage. Krug fans should download the Krug App, as it includes detailed information about the cuvée, the vintage and the blending partners that can be found by entering the ID code. The first three digits of the ID code represent the date of disgorgement, so that ID316 translates to the third quarter of 2016.
