Moncharm | Krug 2000
Combining an exotic nose of nougat, hazelnut, caramel, pastries and fresh bread, this light gold colored champagne rewards the senses with a complex palate of intense citrus fruit, lime zest, fig, anise and grapefruit, which trails into a lasting briny finish. Moncharm would recommend this can be drunk now and until 2027.
