    Named Classic Beauty by the house’s tasting committee, Krug 2008 is something special – intense, elegant and powerful with astounding structure, reflecting the classic northern climate in which it was produced. The year 2008 was one of Champagne's coolest in 14 years.

    At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year. The 2008 offering is a symphony of rare harmony: expressive, contrasting but balanced, with a long, precise finish.

    A classic year

    2008 was cool, not too sunny and with reliable temperatures throughout. This absence of extremes meant slow and steady grape maturation in the Krug vineyards, with fruit that was intense, elegant and beautifully structured. Just over half of the final selected wines are pinot noir. Meunier (25%) adds tension and citrus, while aromatic chardonnay (22%) imbues the blend with fruit.

Composed with care

A rare music
A rare music

Every Krug Vintage tells a story. In 1843 Krug’s founder, Joseph Krug, had a vision: while the Grande Cuveé would be a consistent blend, drawn from the wines of numerous years, the Vintage would express the particular character, or “music”, of a single year. After 12 years in the cellars, the 2008 Vintage pulses with expression and harmony, a composition that is contrasting and powerful.
