Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to offer the very best Champagne every year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured this vision with each new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée: the fullest expression of Champagne.
KRUG GRANDE CUVÉE 169ÈME ÉDITION IN ESSENCE: It is a blend of 198 wines from 11 different years, the youngest is from the year 2012, while the oldest dates back to 1996. Its final composition is 52% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 13% Meunier. A stay of around seven years, or six years in the case of half-bottles, in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Grande Cuvée 168th Édition its distinct expression and elegance.
TASTING NOTES: A light golden colour and fine, vivacious bubbles, holding a promise of pleasure. Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread. Flavours of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche and honey.
