Details
Nothing captures the essence and character of the year in question quite like Krug's Les Créations de 2011, presented in a stunning wooden box. Comprising a bottle each of two very special releases – Krug Vintage 2011 and Krug Grande Cuvée 167ème Édition – it tells the story of an interesting 12 months in the vineyards.
Vintage 2011 is a pinot-noir-led champagne with a spirited roundness and generosity, thanks to the inclusion of the year's particularly juicy and ripe chardonnay grapes. Grande Cuvée 167ème Édition, meanwhile, is an assemblage of 191 wines from 13 different years, the youngest of which comes from the 2011 harvest.

BLEND & ORIGIN CHAMPAGNE

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Krug Les Créations de 2011

2011 is a year that's remembered for its unpredictable weather – an intense summer started earlier than usual and it was followed by rainfall and cool weather, as well as scorching heat on the eve of the harvest.
 

Summing up the year as a whole is Krug 2011 – a blend of 46% pinot noir, 37% chardonnay and 17% meunier – which spent 12 years maturing in the cellar.
 

Krug Grande Cuvée 167ème Édition, meanwhile, is a masterful assemblage of 191 wines from 13 different years – the oldest dating back to 1995 and the youngest from 2011.

Its final composition is 47% pinot noir, 36% chardonnay and 17% meunier – and it had a stay of around seven years in Krug's cellars.
