Time’s second revelation of Krug Vintage. A very limited number of bottles of each Krug Vintage are kept in ideal conditions at the House of Krug cellars. Tasted and appraised, they are waiting to blossom into a second life, a life that exalts time and reveals a new facet of this Champagne. Krug Vintage thus becomes Krug Collection. Time then takes on a new, hitherto unknown meaning.
Rémi Krug was kind enough to tell us a bit about his own, personal recollections of the 1928 Krug:
“I got my first taste of the 1928 at my grandfather’s house, where each of the five grandchildren took turns visiting for lunch every week, each on our own day. My day was Thursday. Because the middle of the week was free at that time in France, I got to stay at my grandparents’ house after lunch and listen to stories about their lives, our family, the town and the wars - this was something about which they had a lot to say!
At lunch I always got a small drop of Krug in a tiny children’s champagne flute as well as Bordeaux – this is how I found most of the Bordeaux I adore. The Krug was, naturally, a Grand Cuvée, but once or twice a year we got to enjoy the famous Krug 1928 – I can still remember the rich, tender, enchanting magic in those few drops of divine nectar from my childhood.
