Krug 1998
Its golden yellow appearance gave way to ripe bruised apples, toasted brioche and plenty of minerals on the nose. Medium to medium plus acidity supported the buttery mouthfeel very well. Ripe pink lady and bosc pears seemed to dominate the palate right now, with just a touch of green fruit. The racy backbone was unmistakably Krug and the medium plus finish lingered even after having the delicious fresh oysters stir fried with onions, ginger and oyster sauce in a casserole. Drinking really well now but can probably last for another decade or so.
