Details
In 1843, Joseph Krug had one goal in mind: to create the very best champagne each and every year, irrespective of the climactic ups and downs that take place in the vineyards. And Krug Grande Cuvée is the annual result.
A blend of multiple vintages, made from only the best grapes, and aged for around seven years in oak casks, it has complex and elegant layers of flavour with a balancing acidity. As with all releases of Krug Grande Cuvée, there are myriad flavours and aromas in which everyone can find something that stirs the emotions.

BLEND & ORIGIN CHAMPAGNE

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Krug Grande Cuvée

Beyond the notion of vintage, this Krug Grande Cuvée – like every other – is a blend of wines from more than 120 plots, individually kept from more than 10 different years.
 

The art of blending wines from so many different years gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, impossible to express with the wines of just a single year.
 

A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Grande Cuvée its distinct expression and elegance.
 

As the years pass, particular aspects of its character become more accentuated, and the champagne can be enjoyed now or in years to come.

FOOD PAIRING KRUG

FOOD PAIRING:
Krug Grande Cuvée

Ideal served as an aperitif with Jabugo ham and some mature Comté cheese, or try it alongside fresh seafood, such as shucked natural oysters and grilled prawns.

Moving onto mains, it goes very well with slightly heavier dishes that pack a bit of punch – think spiced food such as Indian or Moroccan cuisines.

For dessert, serve it with a slice of gently spiced carrot cake, a classic tarte tatin or a rich, creamy cheesecake.
