For the blend, the wines chosen are those that best highlight the exceptional character of 2008. The Pinot Noirs, which make up more than half of the blend (53%), come mainly from the famous parcels on the southern slopes of the Montagne de Reims, particularly those of Aÿ, Mareuil, Bouzy and Ambonnay. The Meuniers (25%), with their tension, bring citrus notes, while the richly flavoured wines from the Chardonnay parcels (22%) give a fruity note to the overall blend.
After 12 years in the cellars, Krug Vintage 2008 has gained in expression and presents a remarkable, precise and harmonious profile. The year 2008: 2008 was one of the coolest years in the last 14 years, but also one of the least sunny in Champagne for almost half a century. Rainfall was not excessive during the growth of the vines, while the summer was dry. This was followed by ideal weather conditions during the harvest. The absence of strong heat during the summer of 2008 allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and progressively. At Krug, 2008 gave birth to a timeless Champagne, perfectly balanced between freshness, structure and aromatic richness. The unexpected diversity of grape varieties translates into great complexity, and we observed a very broad spectrum of flavours and aromas during the harvest. For the final blend, the Cellar Master selected wines that reflected the complexity of 2008 in a beautifully structured composition marked by the elegance of that year.
