KRUG GRANDE CUVÉE :  THE SIGNATURE

At the Heart and Origin of the House of Krug

 

The House of Krug was founded in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug. He wanted to create champagne of unquestionably high quality and extraordinary taste. This is Krug Grande Cuvée a non-vintage by choice, really multi-vintage, yet it is the only way to ensure continuity of taste and consistency of style.

Multi-vintage blending also provides wonderful “full-spectrum” harmony, as in a symphony where no single instrument stands out against the others and the magical effect is instead achieved by the orchestra as a whole

Krug Grande Cuvee transcends vintages to be the most outstanding prestige Cuvee every year!

 

Krug Taste

Krug Grande Cuvée is the perfect encounter of a great wine - intensity, complexity depth and length - with what you expect from the finest champagne - elegance, finesse, excitement, seduction and vitality.

 

The Blend

3 grape varieties from many selected parcels, many years, Krug Grande  Cuvée is the result of blending around 100 wines from 7 to 10 different vintages – the oldest might be 15 years old already – before allowing enough time – another 6 years in the cellars and one after disgorging before going to market – to finish the creation.

Close to 20 years are necessary to enjoy a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée

Tasting Notes

Versatile and contrasted, Krug Grande Cuvée can reconcile in a single sip all of the Krug paradoxes, maturity and freshness, power and fineness, richness and elegance, complex yet so remarkably crisp and clean.

 Toast, soft spices, dried fruits, almond, citrus fruits and lemon.
