Krug Grande Cuvee 163th Edition Champagne Magnum 150cl 12% ABV
Presented in an elegant luxury Gift Box, Krug Grande Cuvée is the archetype of Krug’s philosophy of craftsmanship and savoir faire: a blend of more than 120 wines from ten or more different years. An exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles.
A gleaming gold colour, an extravagantly expansive bouquet, with an almost creamy texture. Then, an explosion of flavours, at once mellow and mature, crisp and clean. Toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, soft spices, dried and candied fruit. Hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey. Krug Grande Cuvee is the ultimate expression of the Krug style. So much so that all other Krugs may be said to have something of the Grande Cuvee in them.
Its exceptional finesse is the result of a stay of at least another six years in the cellars after blending. Every glass of Krug Grande Cuvée is the fruit of many years of craft and patience. The art of blending many years gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique plethora of flavours and aromas, incredible generosity and an absolute elegance that would be impossible to express with the wines of a single year. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully.
According to Remi Krug: "If Johann-Joseph Krug tasted today’s Grande Cuvée, he would no doubt say that it was exactly what he dreamt of when he founded Krug.
