Description

A limited edition blend of 12 harvests: 1943, 1947, 1959 (remarkably, 15% of the base cuvee comes from these 3 vintages), 1988, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2011. A once in 120-year Champagne - experience the multi-vintage blending technique employed famously by Krug, only the depth of age on the base cuvée and the price are disparate by comparison. NZ's allocation is only available to FWD Co customers, this unique Champagne provides an opportunity for wine lovers to toast the end of World War II seventy years on. 120th Anniversary is a mesmerising glass of Champagne of rare style and stature!

Smells

Wonderfully lifted and complex floral nose, showing hints of acacia flowers, sea breeze, toast and freshly baked bread.

Tastes

Deliciously dry, the richness of the aged base cuvées easily handles the Extra Brut dosage (2g/l), with grilled nuts, biscuit and honey notes offset by truffles, green apple, white peach and sea salt. A Champagne of superior complexity and toasty richness, it can handle 5-10 years further cellaring but it's well and truly ready to enjoy now with seafood and shellfish - a Scallop carpaccio with truffles would be perfect!
