Cuvée presentation

Krug's "multi-vintage" Grande Cuvée champagne accounts for 80% of the maison's production. Made from a blend of around fifty wines from all three grape varieties, this cuvée is characterised by its rich, intense nose with aromas of candied fruit, citrus, hazelnut and buttery brioche and mocha notes. In the mouth, it is supple, full bodied and powerful, delivering a delicate vinosity.

Information about domainKrug

When Johann-Joseph Krug founded Maison Krug in 1843, he dreamed of attaching his name to a unique champagne. He set one simple rule – never cut corners. Today, six generations later, he would be proud of the stubborn perfectionism that still rules the creation and development of his champagne. Krug is one of the few champagne houses to only produce prestige cuvées. The worldwide reputation of this outstanding champagne is based on a rare expertise that combines patience with excellence. The rigorous selection process begins with choosing the three varieties that will go into the complex blends created at Krug. Krug is also the only top brand to fully ferment it champagnes in small oak barrels. It is this delicate process that creates champagnes with intense aromas and rich and complex tastes. Finally, as a model case in Champagne, Krug ages its wines for a minimum of 6 to 8 years. The reward for this is exceptional maturity and longevity. Krug champagnes are one-of-a-kind, standing out above all others and at the peak of what champagne can be.
