Worth the money if you wait a couple years, and if you have money to spare, buy two cases. This will last for a very long time. Drink this with food, not as aperitif. Liked this better than the 1996 and 1995.
Gave this 3 out of 5 now, but gets much better over time. Drank an older (red) label Krug NV couple months ago, and the difference is mind-blowing. Only worth the money if you cellar it for 3-5 years, or just buy the vintage 1998.
This kind of champagne is my favorite. Full-bodied, pinot noir dominated. Is amazing now, but will last at least for another 10 years or so. Cannot wait for the 2002.
