Bright, intense hue in the glass, almost golden in colour, with a fine bead. The aromas offer complex nuances of nut, toast, freshly-baked brioche and almost caramel, as well as the scent of ripe fruit. Wonderful depth on the palate, rich, powerful yet with a gently building intensity. Very pure and precise, with notes of bruised apple, citrus and subtle toffee. The texture here is glorious, creamy and finely-tuned; there is a vibrant, youthful nature throughout, though the acidity is ripe and beautifully integrated. This is without a doubt an exceptional Champagne with the stature and harmony to reward extended cellarage. It will provide enjoyable drinking throughout its evolution. Very fine.
Since the house was established by Joseph Krug in 1843, Krug has become synonymous with the very finest Champagne. Now headed by Olivier, the sixth generation of the family, the wines are known for their power, elegance and ageworthiness.
Their Grande Cuvée sets the standard for Non-vintage Champagnes and single vineyard offerings such as Clos de Mesnil are among the most sought-after wines in the world.
