Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 168

205,00

Krug Grande Cuvée is re-created every year and the 168ème Édition is based on the 2012 harvest complemented by 42% reserve wines from 11 different vintages dating back to 1996. This is a sensational release with abundant aromas of white flowers, fresh and dried citrus, marzipan, toasted nuts and gingerbread. On the palate it is full-bodied and generous with a deep core of fruit and a wonderfully silky, refined mousse. Immediately enjoyable and ready to drink, however, Grande Cuvée has an excellent track record for ageing and this can be expected to improve over the next couple of decades.

Description

The House was established in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, as well as building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years allowed Joseph Krug to fulfil his dream.

With a very original approach to Champagne making, he decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the most generous expression of Champagne, every year. Thus, he founded a House in which all Champagnes are of the same level of distinction.

Six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated this dream, enriching the founder’s vision and savoir faire.
