Krug Krug Grande Cuvée 170th Edition Bottle (0.75L) | Box
Krug Grande Cuvée 170th Edition Bottle with Gift Box is the most generous expression of Krug champagnes. A blend of 195 wines from 12 different years, the youngest dating from 2014 and the oldest from 1998, Grande Cuvée Edition 170 is a champagne of great richness and fine elegance, beyond the notion of vintages.
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.
Krug Grande Cuvée is made of Pinot Noir (51 %), Chardonnay (38 %) and Meunier (11 %). Reserve wines from Krug’s large wine library make up 45% of the final blend, lending the essential fullness and roundness to each Krug Grande Cuvée Edition.
This cuvée was crafted around the 2014 harvest, a capricious year in Champagne marked by hot, dry periods and cool, rainy ones. The vines developed in good conditions, ensuring a generous harvest. The climatic contrasts helped to preserve freshness and achieve great heterogeneity across the region, reinforcing the importance of understanding each parcel through its wine, according to the House’s wishes.
