Krug 95 pairings

Pigloader | Apr 26, 2009 05:35 AM

So my daughter was born last Sunday, and for her one week, we're thinking of opening the bottle of Krug I intended to be drunk at the hospital (silly me... what the hell was I thinking?). I've had non-vintage, but never 95-- everything I read says it's still a very youthful Champagne. Is it as big and blustery as some of the other 95s I've had? I'm inclined to think not, given that it's Krug-- so are we talking focused and linear, minerals and citrus, etc?

I was thinking scallops right off the bat, since I can't really take the time to make anything super complicated--just some spring peas or something to go with. Or should I just drink it by itself? Thoughts?
