Krug Grande Cuvée is at the heart of the House of Krug: it is its raison d’être. Since 1843, Krug Grande Cuvée has embodied the utmost in excellence that Joseph Krug, the founder of the House of Krug, sought to give his clients, a Champagne of extreme generosity and absolute elegance, the very best every year.Deep golden colour and fine, vivacious bubbles, predicting fullness and elegance. Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe & dried fruit, marzipan, gingerbread and citrus fruits. Flavours of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche and honey. Dry.
Over twenty years are needed to craft each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée.
Blending so many vintages gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, impossible to express with the wines of just a single year. It is the first prestige cuvee re-created each year, beyond the very notion of vintage. It is blend of around 120 wines from ten or more different vintages and three grape varieties.
Krug Grande Cuvée’s timeless character and unforgettable sensations reconcile the paradoxical:
Fullness and finesse, maturity and freshness. Krug Grande Cuvée’s exceptional finesse, expressed through its subtle bubbles is the result of resting for at least another six years in Krug’s cellars.
