Since 1843, the House of Krug unveils of a new edition of Krug Grande Cuvée each year. Touted as ‘the most generous expression of Champagne’, the edition is offered annually (regardless of annual variations in climate) in honor of its founder – Joseph Krug. And in continuing the tradition, the marquee has launched the 168th edition of its signature Grande Cuvée.
An assemblage of almost 200 wines from multiple vintages, the champagne is an amalgamation of great richness and fine elegance, beyond the vintages. It features notes of hazelnuts, nougat, fruit, and citrus jelly along with hints of brioche and honey on the palate. The golden-colored bubbly houses fresh and satiating aromas of dried and citrus fruits, and marzipan and gingerbread, and is best served between 9° and 12°. It can be paired with a varied dish, ranging from Parmesan, fish as well as Black Truffle.
Composed around the harvest of 2012, the 168th edition of Grande Cuvée is made up of 42 percent of reserve wines such as chardonnay from northern Montagne de Reims and Verzenay. It has further been aged for on lees for seven years. The exclusive Champagne by Maison Krug is currently available for purchase with select retailers worldwide at $212(approx.). Let’s raise a toast to excellence!
