**Note: blended from all 3 grape varieties and from a wide range of vintages and rests at least five years in Krug's cellars after bottling**
Medium rosé hue. A restrained and highly complex nose, that is not especially fruity, displays a moderate yeast character along with slightly exotic aromas of mandarin orange and Asian tea, all wrapped in an enveloping array of beguiling rose petal scents. There is very good richness with a relatively soft supporting mousse that adds to the impression of richness to the superbly complex and highly textured flavors, indeed one could aptly describe this as more wine that Champagne. As such this is indeed a sumptuous Krug rosé and as such, while this could be drunk now with much pleasure or held for further development; it is going to be extremely difficult to stay away from! In short this is stunningly good and should only serve to add to the mystique of this cuvée. I should note that while I am not always wowed by the Krug Rosé this latest incarnation is strikingly good.

The Story

Krug Rosé is the only prestige cuvee rosé to be blended from a rich palette of wines from three different grape varieties, and from such a wide range of vintages. These are blended with a wonderfully expressive skin-fermented Pinot Noir wine to deliver its unparalleled and characteristic colour and spice. A resting time of at least five years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Rosé its subtle bubbles and long-lasting elegance. Krug Rosé is everywhere we don’t expect it to be, in terms of texture, colour and taste. A completely reinvented Rosé Universe. Krug Rosé is a remarkable Champagne which encapsulates the same creative spirit of Krug Grande Cuvée, again surpassing the very notion of vintage.

Wine Information

Krug Rosé is both unexpected and daring. It shows a broad and extensive aromatic palette, unusual for a Rosé Champagne.
As you taste Krug Rosé, you will discover harmonies of puff pastry and red-berry tart, which develop towards honey and citrus fruits.
Its floral accents and notes of dried or stewed fruit will enthral your palate. Its extreme delicacy is enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles.

Written Notes

Super fresh and bright with musky red fruit aromas as well as gently marzipan scented biscuits on the nose; spices all here too. Great complexity and depth, really elegant, assertive and deep. Long and even, superb depth through the finish. Great wine. Drink young and precocious. Krug ID 313042

A subtle, pale pink. On the nose, aromas of rose hips, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper and pink grapefruit are revealed.Puff pastry and red-berry tart develop into flavours reminiscent of honey, citrus and dried fruit with a long finish.

"This seemed to be an older bottle but absent a disgorgement date I would not know. Strawberries, raspberry sherbet, almonds. Great"

Made by the bleeding of pinot noir grape skins (saignée), the final champagne pours a deep salmon color with very long legs and fine bubbles. Surprisingly, for a rose, this champagne is very masculine with remarkable intensity. The nose is powerful, concentrated, and definitely dominated by pinot. Spice, currants, cheries, brioche, Kool-aid, and chalk are all there in the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is silky, toasty, robust yet light with remarkable finesse. In fact, the bubbles are barely there. Notes of walnuts, cheeses, berries, toasted almonds and mineral are there. The finish is long with a clean and elegant cut in the end. This is fabulous stuff and definitely one of the best Rose champagnes I have had in my life, ever.

One interesting story here from Nicole. The story goes that the first unofficial rose vintage is made in 1915 when Jeanne, the wife of Joseph II, accidentally bled pinot noir skins into the wine during World War 1. As a result of the sentimental value to the family, the rose wine was never replicated by the grande marque. In 1983, this all changed when Henri and Remi Krug decided to make it again, consciously. At that time upon tasting, their father Paul was so alarmed as he thought someone was replicating the Krug flagship. But in the end, he was placated when explained by his sons. And that was how the rose line was born. 94
