Krug, Grande Cuvée, AOC ChampagneRegular price €235.00
Among the finest champagnes in the world.
As you taste it, notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied fruits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey.
You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully.
Over twenty years are needed to craft each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée. Blending so many vintages gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, impossible to express with the wines of just a single year.
It is the first prestige cuvée re-created each year and thus beyond the very notion of vintage.
Together with Krug’s other cuvées, it has made Krug the world’s best-rated Champagne for years.
Like all Krug champagnes, it can age beautifully. The ID code, a six- digit number located on the upper left hand side of the back label, can be used as a reference to collect bottles and enjoy them later.
Every glass of Krug Grande Cuvée is the fruit of many years of craft and patience. The art of blending many years gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique plethora of flavours and aromas, incredible generosity and an absolute elegance that would be impossible to express with the wines of a single year.
Every year, we recreate from scratch the multitude of facets that form perfect harmony on the palate, no flavour dominating or competing with another; this is the main characteristic of Krug Grande Cuvée. Its myriad aromas make Krug Grande Cuvée the richest of them all. Its true generosity means that everyone can find something in it that stirs their emotions.
Eric Lebel, Chef de Caves, Krug
"Rich, with smoky hints of roasted almond and toasted brioche, this crystalline Champagne offers a finely detailed mousse that carries the firm, citrusy acidity and flavors of patisserie apple, spun honey and tangy black cherry, accented by subtle, aromatic hints of ground cumin and clove, bergamot and chamomile."
