    Expressive and opulent, Krug Collection 1988 is a multifaceted, multilayered champagne. A true rarity – a limited number of bottles are available – it will continue to improve with age.

    Collection 1988 is the second incarnation of Krug 1988. One of three exceptional vintages to be held in Krug’s cellars after the original release, it has evolved to reveal new character and depth.

  • Blend and Origin

    This champagne is a careful blend of pinot noir (50%), chardonnay (32%) and meunier (18%) from 21 different villages in Champagne. In 1988, a year without excess, alternating periods of heat and rain encouraged the grapes to mature slowly and develop a high level of freshness. Set aside in the maison’s cellars, the vintage was allowed to blossom into its second life.

Revealing a new personality
Revealing a new personality

The years 1988, 1989 and 1990 have gone down in history as three of the most extraordinary in Champagne. Krug Collection 1988 is a testament to Krug's craftsmanship and to the art of time sublimation. It took nearly three decades for this expressive Champagne to blossom into its second life. Krug Collection 1988 proves yet again that time is the constant ally of all Krug Champagnes.

Food pairing:
Rich, unctuous dishes pair well

Starter

For this complex, elegant champagne, serve alongside classic poached turbot with hollandaise sauce, or pan-fried sea bass in a creamy velouté.

Main

A rich Madeira cake studded with candied fruit and topped with toasted almonds is an intriguing match.
