Krug Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne
All releases of Krug Grande Cuvée will have a unique edition number clearly printed on the front label and today sees the first release of its kind – Edition 163, marking the 163rd release of Grande Cuvée since the foundation of Maison Krug in 1843.
Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have specialised in producing only prestige cuvee Champagnes with a total dedication to quality. Using traditional methods, the House of Krug makes no compromise while making their Champagnes. Alone among champagne houses, Krug still ferments all of its wines in small oak casks, allowing them to develop supremely rich and complex aromas. Every bottle remains in the cellars at Reims for at least 6 years.
Krug Grande Cuvée is the archetype of Krug’s philosophy of craftsmanship and savoir faire: a blend of more than 120 wines from ten or more different years. Its exceptional finesse is the result of a stay of at least another six years in the cellars. Over twenty years are needed to craft each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée!
A smoky, intense wine, with layer upon layer of coffee, roast nut, golden piecrust, ripe apple, honey and spice flavors. The richness is balanced by a focused freshness.
