    In 1843, Joseph Krug had one goal in mind: to create the very best champagne each and every year, irrespective of the climactic ups and downs that take place in the vineyards. And Krug Grande Cuvée is the annual result. A blend of multiple vintages, made from only the best grapes, and aged for around seven years in oak casks, it has complex and elegant layers of flavour with a balancing acidity. As with all releases of Krug Grande Cuvée, there are myriad flavours and aromas in which everyone can find something that stirs the emotions.

    Krug

    Krug is one of Champagne's most prestigious houses and collectible in Champagne. The house was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, in his native home of Mosel part of Germany at that time. Joseph Krug moved to France and spent some time working for Jacquesson, the leading Champagne house of the time. Krug's philosophy was that every Champagne should be the best possible expression, and eschewed the common idea of a hierarchy of Champagne. Instead, he began to craft a premium wine from a reserve of wines vinified separately by the growers themselves, a wine that would eventually become the Grande Cuvée.

    Krug sits alongside the likes of Dom Pérignon and Cristal at the top of the Champagne tree, and is a blend of 120 different wines from 10 or more vintages from the so-called Krug Library (a repository of still wines held prior to blending and refermenting in bottle). It is aged for six years, and is noted for its complex brioche and spice characters.

    Today, the wines are still vinified by individual plot, and are stored in the Krug Library. Every year, the chef de cave heads a tasting committee which decides on the final blend. This library holds reserve wines anywhere from the current vintage to those 50 years old and are produced from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, which are all grown at Krug and used throughout the collection. Krug also makes several other Champagnes, including a rosé non-vintage and a Krug vintage, which is only produced in the best years.

    Tasting notes

    NOSE
    Floral, Ripe Citrus, Marzipan

    Expect aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruit, as well as marzipan and gingerbread.

    PALATE
    Hazelnut, Brioche, Luxurious

    On the palate, there are flavours of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruit, almonds, brioche and honey. The creamy texture and vibrant acidity create a luxurious and refreshing experience.

    FINISH
    Long, Complex, Satisfying

    The finish is long and complex, with flavours of brioche, citrus, and a hint of toasted almond lingering on the palate. A subtle salinity adds a refreshing counterpoint, creating a satisfying and enduring aftertaste.
