Staff Pick Notes

Decadence. Pleasure. Luxury. These are all words we have come to associate with King Krug. But what of the wine itself? On the nose, we are given a wonderfully complex bouquet, combining lemon citrus and orchard fruits, luscious marzipan and candied notes with rich, toasted brioche aromas. This is a true pleasure - supple and supremely structured. The palate reveals a very sophisticated wine. It is smooth, creamy and weighty, and gives us hazelnuts, roasted almonds and Christmas cookies. Don't forget, for all the richness going on, this is a dry wine too. The finish is long and textured. Long Live the King!

These winemakers control every...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
