Behind the Label
- The Maison
The Founder's notebook: words to live by
Since the maison was founded in 1843, five generations have upheld Joseph Krug’s blueprint for crafting champagnes of unwavering quality year after year. His method was meticulously recorded in a dark-cherry-colored notebook, which visitors to the maison can still see today.
A quest for singularity
Assured in the knowledge that terroir can produce magical results, Krug nurtures 420 individual wines from 250 plots of vines, with the grapes from each vinified separately in oak barrels or individual tanks. Of these, the most remarkable are arguably those used to create Krug Clos du Mesnil and Clos d’Ambonnay.
