Oct. 16, 2002: KRUG Brut Champagne Grande Cuvée NV NV (96 points, $140)

Krug is setting a torrid pace for Champagne these days, as evidenced by this classic-scoring non-vintage wine. One whiff and you know this is serious stuff. The aromas of baking brioche, coconut, candied citrus and leather pick up roasted coffee and grill —Bruce Sanderson
