Profile

Krug Grande Cuvée 172ème Édition is a blend with 146 different reserve wines spanning 11 different vintages (the oldest 1998) and threaded them together around the 2016 vintage as base wine.

To create this Édition, the Cellar Master looked to accentuate the year’s elegantly diverse aromatic expressions with a broad spectrum of different plots’ wines from 11 other years.

In all, reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 42% of the final blend, bringing the breadth and roundness so essential to each Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.

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. Grilled notes and flavours of almond paste, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit.

Critic awards

Beautiful notes of dried citrus fruit, lemon curd and dried apples with hints of spices, dried flowers and subtle brioche. I like the polished and caressing texture and steady, refreshing acidity. It’s fresh and even austere, with notes of ground spices. So vertical and firm. Structured and long.

— 97 points, James Suckling
