Krug Rosé 25th Edition Bottle (0.75L) | Naked Bottle
Produced in strictly limited quantities, Krug Rosé 25th Edition is not a classic rosé champagne: it is original, voluptuous, mysterious, born of the dream of the fifth generation of the Krug family to create a novel, unexpected, bold and elegant rosé champagne that can be recreated every year.
Krug Rosé 25th Edition is a blend of 28 wines from 5 different years. The youngest dating from 2013 and the oldest from 2008.
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.
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.
