Krug 170th Edition 'Grande Cuvée', Champagne, France [375ml]
The Greatest Champagne of All Time.
Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honored this vision with each new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée: the most generous expression of Champagne.
Krug Grande Cuvée is re-created every year, beyond the notion of vintage, and is a blend of over 120 individual wines from more than 10 different years. The fullness of flavors and aromas achieved by this careful art of blending would be impossible to express with the wines of a single year.
Winemaker/Chef du Cave: Julie Cavil
Grape Varieties: In all, 11 years of reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 45% of the final blend.The final composition of this bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée is 51% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay and 11% Meunier.
Vinification/Oak Usage: Vinified in small neutral oak and stainless steel vessels.
