As a general observation, when Krug changed the Grande Cuvee label around 2005 there seemed to be a decline in the quality of this bottling for while. In the last couple of years it seems to be back to its old standard.
While I have no unequivocal evidence to support this, I believe I know the reason for this improvement: I used to buy 2 or 3 bottles of Krug GC every year for a while, but after the label change I cut back to 1 bottle a year, and in a couple of years I even bought none. It didn't take long for the economic impact of this to hit Krug pretty hard, and I'm fairly certain they got the message loud and clear, finally responding exactly as I knew they would be forced to do.
Yes, yes, you are all very welcome. It was nothing, really.
This is the funniest thing I've read on this board all year. Thanks Seaquam.
