    The 2006 vintage was considered hot and unpredictable in Champagne, with temperatures regularly reaching 30°C. But there was also rain, and plenty of it. The sun shone during the harvest, and the grapes developed a fine balance, similar to that of 2002 and 1989. Pinot noir (45%), chardonnay (35%) and meunier (20%) make up the blend.

Krug's craftsmanship
Krug's craftsmanship

A cornerstone of Krug's craftsmanship is the concept of individuality, or the art of turning the harvest from every plot into a separate wine and then following its individual character before any blending decision is made. This allows Krug's Cellar Master to identify and discern wines from single plots that can enrich that year's creations, others to be kept as reserve wines for later use or wines to reject, which do not reach the desired profile.

Pair this vintage with a rich and fragrant chicken tagine with preserved lemons, or perhaps a slow-roasted leg of lamb with a ratatouille-inspired sauce.
