Layers of bright, chiseled fruit open up effortlessly as the wine fleshes out with time in the glass. Persistent and beautifully focused, with a translucent sense of energy, the 2004 captures all the best qualities of the year. Moreover, the 2004 is clearly superior to the consistently underwhelming 2002 and the best Krug Vintage since 1996. Readers who can find it should not hesitate, as it is a magical bottle.

This is an extremely fresh edition and remains in a restrained mode with an intense serve of chardonnay's lemon citrus dominating the nose alongside lime zest, bright florals, grassy elements, fresh dough, white stones and very subtle background spice. The palate has a svelte and elegant shape. Smoother than the 2002, it shares the same quality of precision but not the raging power of that vintage. The poise is unquestionable, the wine very reserved, with plenty of lemon-infused citrus flavors, hints of fresh cashew and a lot of potential. Acidity holds superbly, the dosage is exactly where it should be. This is a classic release. It's all about chardonnay. Best from 2022 and will mature gracefully in linear style in bottle for several decades.

The 2004 Krug remains one of the most beautiful young vintages of this bottling to be released in quite some time. It does not have the power and sternness of structure of the titan that is the 2002, nor the shimmering generosity of the 2003, but it is a great, great classic in the making that already exudes the depth and refinement that is vintage Krug in the finest years. As I mentioned last year, the wine is composed of a blend of thirty-nine percent chardonnay, thirty-seven percent pinot noir and twenty-four percent pinot meunier, with this particular bottle having been disgorged three months later than the last one I tasted, in the summer of 2016. The nose offers up a stunning constellation of apple, pear, a very complex base of soil tones, lovey smokiness, caraway seed, spring flowers, incipient notes of orange zest and a lovely touch of almond in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, focused and full-bodied, with a rock solid core, superb complexity and grip and a very, very long, vibrant and seamless finish. This will be at its true apogee fifteen to twenty years from now, but I wonder how many bottles will survive to that point, as it is a breathtakingly beautiful glass of bubbly already!

There are fresh, candied citrus as well as ripe yellow-fleshed fruit aromas along with floral and lots of chalky notes on the well-concentrated bouquet. The palate is incredibly fruity, vibrantly fresh yet delicate and very well balanced and is provided with great elegance, texture, finesse and remarkable mineral tension. The 2004—a blend of Chardonnay (39%), Pinot Noir (37%) and Pinot Meunier (24%)—is completely built on freshness and taut yet balanced vitality. It is the last of the second trilogy in the history of the House, the first being 1988, 1989 and 1990 and the second 2002, 2003 and 2004. Tasted in April 2018 from ID 316034 that was disgorged in III/2016. - Stephan Reinhardt
