Grande Cuvée Edition 168 Magnum (1.5L) | Naked Bottle
Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 168 Magnum is the richest expression of Krug champagne. A wine of great richness and fine elegance, beyond the vintages.
Perennial and constant, Krug Grande Cuvée is the heart of the Krug identity. Krug Grande Cuvée owes its personality, like all other Krugs, to its birth by first fermentation in small oak barrels: this dimension which marks the Krug style. The Krug exception, a unique champagne. Its methods guaranteeing the highest quality, its 19-hectare vineyard, the strictness of its supplies on 56 hectares and its three million bottles that have been waiting for many years in its cellars make Krug the reference for Prestige Champagne.
168th edition: Krug Grande Cuvée 168th edition is structured 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 vineyards of Champagne in winter and spring 2012. The end of the year was the driest since 1974, resulting in a smaller crop than in previous years.
In addition to the wines of the year, the Champagne House drew from its impressive library of reserve wines, a carefully selected selection of which provided 42% of the final blend. Several Meuniers from different years gave it 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.
