Krug Grande Cuvée is the first and unique Prestige Champagne re-created every year, beyond the notion of vintage.
The art of blending wines from so many different years gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, impossible to express with the wines of just a single year.
The Édition number corresponds to the number of times in the House of Krug the founder’s dream has been re-created. It also serves as a reference for collectors, to enjoy it later.
It is a blend of 140 wines from 13 different years, the youngest of which is from 2010, while the oldest dates back to 1998.
- Its final composition is 45% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay and 16% Meunier.
- A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Grande Cuvée 166ème Édition its distinct expression and elegance.
A light golden colour and fine, vivacious bubbles, holding a promise of pleasure.
Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread.
Flavours of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche and honey.
