Reviews for 1985 Krug Brut Vintage

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, December 1996
A seductive fully mature spicy-flavored Champagne that's rich in texture full in body still quite firm in balance and long on the finish. What a satisfying taste experience! Drink now through 1999. -

I have had a number of bottles, even from the same cellar, that have been showing plenty of age and even occasionally flirting with oxidative hints yet this most recent bottle (from my cellar) was among the freshest I’ve had in a while with its intensely yeasty and toasty aromas of white orchard fruit, citrus peel, marmalade and orange peel. This is arguably the most complex vintage of the 1980s (though not necessarily the most vibrant or the most complete) and in particular I like the way that the mousse has managed to maintain most of its original vigor on the sweet yet ultimately dry finale that delivers very fine persistence. While this bottle was admirably fresh it’s clear that it’s time to drink up sooner than later unless your taste runs to post-mature characters. now

It's really a wine to study, muse over and drink reflectively with food, but we enjoyed it as an aperitif at the beginning of an amazing dinner at Berry Bros for... Very mature. Dense and intellectual with a dry finish. It's really a wine to study, muse over and drink reflectively with food, but we enjoyed it as an aperitif at the beginning of an amazing dinner at Berry Bros for which a kind donor bid £100,000 at a London auction for Room to Read. 18/20
