The Story

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.

Vintage 1982

Probably one of the most generous yields in the history of Champagne, the year 1982 is a « classic » in terms of climate throughout the year.

Heat in June, July, August and September with sufficient rain at the right moments over vines which had rested well after the previous small crops, gave us wines of excellent ripeness and fairly full character despite a record size crop. The House did not hesitate to create Krug 1982 as the year had a very interesting character and story to tell.

Krug 1982 is the result of blending opulent and powerful Pinot Noirs (54%), rich Chardonnays (30%) and spicy Meuniers (16%). Krug 1982 is on the full bodied side of Krug vintages, not as big as the 1959 or 1976; we see it more in the heritage of the renowned 1964 or even 1953.

Written Notes

Let’s get to the juice. We started with a 1982 Krug Collection, which was finally showing some mature aromas. My knock on all the recently released Krug Collections is that they are tough to drink upon release, delivering more rocket fuel and razors than fruit and flavor. This bottle was toasty and tasty with a balanced, nutty finish. ‘Great’ was written once, and the ’82 was finally starting to come into its own, although it still seemed young forever (95).

 John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  tasted  Krug Collection 1982  ( Krug )

"It was a serious crowd, and a serious wine lineup accordingly. Everyone had contributed a wine from their cellars, and the venue was the penthouse private space of the new Nomad hotel, whose restaurant is courtesy of none other than Daniel Humm, who was there personally to oversee this extra special event. The food was extraordinary, by the way, but that isn’t news for anyone who has been dining at 11 Madison for the past few years."
