    Krug Grande Cuvée 168th Edition

    Krug Grande Cuvée is the signature of the House of Krug Champagne, born from the vision of one man, Joseph Krug, who dreamed of offering the best champagne possible each year, regardless of climate variations : a champagne of great richness and fine elegance, beyond the notion of vintages.

    Krug Grande Cuvée 168th edition is crafted around the 2012 harvest. In addition to the wines of the year, which provide freshness, the Champagne House drew on its impressive library of reserve wines, a carefully selected group of which provided 42% of the final blend, which give it fullness and roundness.

    The Magnum format is a large 1.5 litres bottle, which represents 2 bottles of champagne or 12 glasses. This large format, presented in a luxurious box, is ideal for receptions, dinners, special occasions and gifts.

    Tasting Notes

    The tasting reveals round, pastry-like notes, underlined by an intense golden colour and fine bubbles full of vivacity, predicting fullness and elegance.

    Food pairings

    Krug Grande Cuvée lends itself to many culinary combinations, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, pairing with an old parmesan cheese or with a turbot with truffles. This champagne can be served as an aperitif with Jabugo ham and an old Comté cheese, a plate of oysters, grilled shrimps, Indian or Moroccan dishes, and also to accompany desserts such as tarte Tatin or cheesecake.

    Technical sheet

    Vinification : Krug Grande Cuvée 168th edition is crafted around the 2012 harvest, a beautiful year with a low yield due to a succession of weather events. Frost, rain, storms and hail hit the Champagne vineyards in winter and spring 2012. The end of the year was the driest since 1974, resulting in a smaller harvest than in previous years. To complement the year's wines, the Champagne House drew on its impressive library of reserve wines, a carefully selected selection of which provided 42% of the final blend. Several Meuniers from different years provided freshness, while Chardonnays and wines from parcels in the Montagne de Reims, harvested in the 1990s, gave it the fullness and roundness essential to each edition of Krug Grande Cuvée.

    Dosage : Serve between 9 et 12 °C. g/litre

    Characteristics : Krug Grande Cuvée is the essence of the Krug identity. Like all other Krug Champagnes, Krug Grande Cuvée owes its personality from its first fermentation in small oak barrels: the distinctive dimension that marks the Krug style. The wine making techniques of the highest quality, its 19-hectare vineyard, the strictness of its supplies from 56 hectares and its three million bottles that have been waiting for many years in its cellars make Krug the reference for Prestige Champagne.

    A NON-CONFORMIST VISION
    Krug has never failed to maintain its reputation as a great Champagne House, producing exclusively prestige cuvées! When the visionary Joseph Krug founded his House in 1843, he decided to go beyond the vintage and transcend the existing limits of blending to create an unexpected and contrasting Champagne of undisputed quality: Krug Grande Cuvée, the first prestige cuvée, recreated each year.
