Released this year, Krug’s 1996 is one of the last ’96 vintage Champagnes to reach the market, and it is the last vintage to draw on the experience of three generations of the Krug family (including now-director Olivier Krug) during the base wine’s blending. The growing season saw generally warm and sunny days and unusually cool nights, resulting in wines with great ripeness but also high acidity. Grapes were sourced from the vineyards of 17 different villages. It was disgorged in late November 2006.
