    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.

    To the eye

    This champagne has a pale gold colour and fine, lively bubbles, a promise of incredible pleasure.

    On the nose

    Aromas of flowers, ripe, candied and dried citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread can be felt on the nose.

    In the mouth

    On the palate there are toasted notes and flavours of marzipan, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit.

    Food & champagne pairings

    Krug Grande Cuvée 170 Edition 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.

    Ideal operating temperature

    Serve between 9 et 12 °C.

    Potential of keeping

    Like all wines, champagne can be kept for varying lengths of time, depending on the type. Under optimal storage conditions, champagne can be kept for 1 to 2 years for Brut cuvées, and up to 4/5 years or even longer for vintage and prestige champagnes. Whatever happens, rest assured that you'll never be able to open your champagne too early, as the Champagne Houses only release their cuvées when they have reached perfect ripeness and are ready for immediate consumption.

    Assembly :
    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.
    Vinification :
    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.
