The Story

Krug Grande Cuvée is the archetype of Krug’s philosophy of craftsmanship and savoir faire: A blend of around 120 wines from ten or more different vintages, some of which may reach 15 years of age. Blending so many vintages gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, its incredible generosity and its absolute elegance - something impossible to express with the wines of just a single year. Its exceptional finesse is the result of a stay of at least another six years in the cellars. Over twenty years are needed to craft each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée: the first prestige cuvee re-created each year, beyond the very notion of vintage.

Written Notes

Det finns ett spännande steg från en ‘vanlig Grande Cuvée’. På Krug väljer man att lagra ett antal flaskor Krug några år extra efter degorgeringen. Dessa märks på baksidesetiketten med ‘RICHESSE’ (tio år), ‘EQUILIBRE’ (fyra till fem år) & SAVOIR-FAIRE (nästan en ren 2001:a). Kan dessa köpas? Icke! De är referenschampagner på Krug. men jag har faktiskt stött på ett par av dess på mina resor ute i världen. TASTINGNOTE En regelrätt Grande Cuvée lagrad cirka tio år extra efter degorgeringen i Krugs perfekta källare. Det är ingen hemlighet att dessa viner för en underbart ökad rikedom och nötighet med ålder och i källarna i Reims mår de allra bäst.

TASTINGNOTE Försteget till Richesse och alltså lagrad cirka 4-5 år efter degorgeringen i Krugs källare. Vibrerande fräsch men också mer chokladig komplexitet än nysläppta Grande Cuvée. "
