Blend and Origin
Krug Vintage 2004
In the Champagne region in 2004, favorable weather helped to encourage good grape ripening and an abundant harvest. Selected to become a vintage due to their distinct character, the fruits were precise and luminous. This blend of 39% chardonnay, 37% pinot noir and 24% meunier spent over 12 years in Krug’s cellar to gain finesse.
Enjoy with citrusy dishes
Pan-seared scallops served with a lemon-butter sauce and sprinkling of fresh thyme are the perfect complement.
Try chicken thighs marinated in lemon and lime juice – and plenty of herbs – then roasted until golden brown and served with steamed asparagus.
