    Cuvée presentation

    Krug's vintage Brut is made from the three main Champagne grape varieties. It is intended as a reflection of a specific year, having spent more than ten years in the cellar. It is generally distinguished by a nose featuring aromas of various fruits (including orange), liquorice, cocoa and biscuit. The intense fruitiness is echoed in the mouth, combined with a certain freshness, and the finish is incredibly long.

    Information about domain Krug

    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.
