Unsurprisingly – and putting it bluntly – Krug 169 is sublime. The nose is profound and focused, consisting of sweet breads, biscuits, white flowers and orchard pear. The palate is rich and textured, striking a perfect equilibrium of power and grace, awash with Danish pastries, lemon rind and a wonderful lift of brisk salinity. It all builds to a lengthy crescendo, worthy of a standing ovation. This is arguably the king of multi-vintage blends. It should provide at least a decade of drinking pleasure; it is superb.

Drink now to 2036.
