Rosé 25th Edition
The edition number corresponds to the number of times the fifth generation dream has been recreated in the House of Krug. It also serves as a reference for collectors to enjoy later. Like all Krug Champagnes, the Krug Rosé 25th Edition will continue to improve with time.
The full story of each Edition is revealed online via its Krug iD, the six digits on the back label.
Its final composition is 45% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 25% Meunier. The composition is then structured around a traditionally macerated pinot noir, for its spicy character, its color and its structure. An aging of about seven years in the cellars of the House of Krug gives Krug Rosé its refined elegance.
Presented in its luxurious box, Krug Rosé 25th Edition is the ideal champagne for your special occasions and gifts.
Visually, its subtle pale pink color is synonymous with elegance.
On the nose, it reveals aromas of rosehip, smoked ham, blackberry, currant, peony, pepper and pink grapefruit.
On the palate, delicate notes of honey, citrus and dried fruits accompany a long final note that the fine bubbles sublimate.
Krug Rosé, the most unconventional of Krug champagnes, is the ideal companion for daring gastronomic adventures: combining grace, depth and generosity, it is the perfect accompaniment to all savory dishes, brilliantly playing the role of a great red wine on your table. This Champagne can be drunk with foie gras, lamb, game, white meat, venison and even spicy dishes.
Ideal serving temperature : Serve between 9 and 12°C.
Blend : Krug Rosé is a blend of 3 grape varieties and 10 to 15 different crus. A rigorous selection is made when choosing the three grape varieties that will be used in the complex blends elaborated by Krug: Pinot Noir, deep, intense and giving the wine an exceptional longevity. The Meunier, with very fruity notes. Chardonnay, fine and elegant.
The 25th Edition is structured around the 2013 harvest. The season began with a seemingly endless winter, followed by a rainy and cool spring. Fortunately, the summer was hot and sunny, but also marked by hail storms that wreaked havoc in the vineyards. The 2013 wines were full, expressive and full of flavor.
For the final creation, the year's wines, which include vibrant, chiseled chardonnays from parcels in the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims, and structured meuniers from parcels in Sainte Gemme, were blended with reserve wines from selected parcels from four other years.
The smooth reserve wines from the 2008 parcels bring roundness, while the pinot noir wines from the Ambonnay and Bouzy parcels of different years bring fruit intensity and the 2012 meuniers bring structure. Reserve wines from Krug's extensive library make up 50% of the blend for this Krug Rosé Edition.
Characteristics : 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.
Characteristics : Non Vintage
