Krug Grande Cuvée Brut (168ème Édition)
Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured this vision with each new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée: the most generous expression of Champagne.
Champagne Number 1, which is known today as Krug Grande Cuvée, is the fullest expression of Champagne, re-created every year, regardless of annual climate variations. Krug Grande Cuvée is a blend of over 120 different wines from more than 10 different years.
Blending so many different wines from different years lends a fullness of flavours and aromas that would be impossible to express with the wines of a single year. It is a complete orchestra playing together in harmony.
Colour: A light golden colour and fine, vivacious bubbles, holding a promise of pleasure.
Palate: Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread.
Finish: Flavours of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche and honey.
