    Krug Vintage 1988

    A blend of pinot noir (50%), chardonnay (32%) and meunier (18%) grapes from plots across 21 Champagne villages, the 1988 was created in a year of near-perfect conditions. A slow maturation period allowed the sugar levels of the grapes to develop steadily and the acidity levels to build. The result is a champagne of balance, with freshness and maturity working in harmony.
