About: Regardless of any variation in growing conditions, Krug succeed in ascending the highest summits of quality, every year, without fail. Such has been their stated aim since 1843 and which each edition of the Grand Cuvée has born witness to for over 170 years.
Blending so many different wines from different years lends a fullness of flavours and aromas that would be impossible with wines of a single year. It is a complete orchestra playing together in harmony. A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives the Grande Cuvée its distinct expression and elegance.
Tasting Note: A light, golden colour with fine, vivacious bubbles. Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread. Grilled notes and flavours of almond paste, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit.Character: Opulent, vinous, complex.
