Every year since the founding of the House of Krug, a new Krug Grande Cuvée Edition has been created. Signature of the Champagne House, born from the imagination of a man, Joseph Krug, who dreamed of offering each year the best champagne possible, regardless of the weather.
Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 170 is the most generous expression of Krug champagnes. A blend of 195 wines from 12 different years, with the youngest dating from 2014 and the oldest from 1998, the Grande Cuvée Edition 170 is a champagne of great richness and fine elegance beyond the vintages. This bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 170 has been resting in the cellar for about seven years, thus gaining in expression and elegance.
Reserve wines from Krug’s extensive library give this Champagne the fullness and roundness essential to each Krug Grande Cuvée Edition.
This champagne has a pale gold color and fine, lively bubbles that promise incomparable 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 we feel toasted notes and flavors of marzipan, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit.
Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 170 lends itself to a myriad of culinary pairings, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, accompanying everything from an old parmesan to a turbot with truffles. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif with Jabugo ham and mature Comté cheese, or with oysters, grilled shrimp, Indian or Moroccan dishes, but also as a dessert with carrot cake, tarte tatin or cheesecake.
Ideal serving temperature : To be consumed between 9 and 12 °C.
Blend : Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 170 is composed of Pinot Noir (51%), Chardonnay (38%) and Meunier (11%). Reserve wines from Krug's extensive library make up 45% of the final blend, lending the essential fullness and roundness to each Krug Grande Cuvée Edition.
Vinification : This cuvée was created 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 have made it possible to preserve the freshness and to obtain a great heterogeneity throughout the region, reinforcing the importance of understanding each parcel through its wine, according to the will of the House.
Characteristics : 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 from 56 hectares and its three million bottles that have been waiting for many years in its cellars make Krug the reference in Prestige Champagne.
