Cuvée presentation

This Champagne is a blend of no less than 191 wines from 13 different vintages, almost half of which underwent a 7-year élevage in the Maison's cellars. Unsurprisingly, the wine is rich to both the olfactory senses and the taste buds. Its golden hue delivers notes of flowers, citrus, dried fruit and gingerbread. The fine bubbles fizz amply and elegantly. Made to be aged extensively, this Champagne will be best appreciated with the finest dishes.

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.
