Tasting Notes

I have previously recounted how tasting a bottle of 1938 Romanée-Conti- caused tears to run down my face. The other day I was given a wine that had nearly the same effect. My eyes momentarily filled but, to my relief, did not overflow. It was Krug 1996. This was, and will be for many years, an utterly extraordinary wine, as perfect in its way as was the Romanée-Conti.
