  • Product Details

    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.
