Every year since the foundation of the House of Krug, a new Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée is crafted. The signature of the Champagne House, born from the vision of one man, Joseph Krug, who dreamed of offering the best champagne possible each year, regardless of climate variations.
This bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée 170th Edition has rested for about seven years in the cellar, thus gaining in expression and elegance.
Reserve wines from Krug’s large wine library give this Champagne the fullness and roundness essential to each Krug Grande Cuvée Edition.
This champagne has a pale gold colour and fine, lively bubbles, a promise of incredible pleasure.
Aromas of flowers, ripe, candied and dried citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread can be felt on the nose.
On the palate there are toasted notes and flavours of marzipan, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit.
Krug Grande Cuvée 170th 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 serving temperature : Serve between 9 et 12 °C.
Blend : 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.
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.
