KRUG GRANDE CUVÉE 166ÈME ÉDITION IN ESSENCE, It is a blend of 140 wines from 10 different years, the youngest of which dates back to 2010 and the oldest to 1998.

The fullest expression of Champagne, created every year, beyond the notion of vintage, 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. As the maison describes it, it is a complete orchestra playing together in harmony.  For Cellar Master Eric Lebel, “Every Édition is different, formed of a unique blend of wines, yet they all bear a family resemblance, an expression and elegance that are distinctly Krug.”

45% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay & 16% Meunier.

The deep golden colour and fine, vivacious bubbles hint at fullness and elegance.

On the nose there are notes of flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, marzipan, gingerbread and citrus fruits. An exceptional freshness in the mouth reveals flavours of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche and honey.

Krug Grande Cuvée lends itself to a wealth of culinary combinations, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, from an extra-mature parmesan to turbot à la truffe. Among the many possibilities, it can been enjoyed as anaperitif with Jabugo ham and old comté, with a dish of oysters, grilled shrimps, Indian or Moroccan food, as well as with desserts such as carrotcake, tarte tatin and cheesecake.
