Winery Tasting Notes


As you taste, it, notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied furits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruits, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey. You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully.

Food Matching

Krug Grande Cuvée's fullness is such that everyone can find something in it to stir their emotions. Its generosity also means that it lends itself to a plethora of culinary combinations, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, from an extra mature parmesan to a dish of turbot à la truffe.

The discovery of unique savoir-faire, a prestige cuvée that goes beyond the very notion of vintage.

Wine Background

Since 1843, Krug Grande Cuvée has embodied the Champagne the founder Joseph Krug sought to share with others: one of incredible generosity and absolute elegance that is impossible to express with the wines of just a single year.

Winemaking Note

Krug Grande Cuvée is a cuvée de prestige created beyond the very notion of vintage.Its unparallelled fullness stems from the exceptional blending of some 120 wines from ten different vintages. These include wines from the same year, as well as individually preserved reserve wines from previous years, some of which may reach 15 years of age. Blending so many vintages gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, an extraordinary generosity with exceptional finess, the result of a stay of at least another 6 years in the cellars.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Small but important Champagne house founded in Rheims in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug, who was born in Mainz, Germany, in 1800. By 1893 the firm occupied its current modest cellars, around whose courtyard the Krug family still live. Krug does not make an ordinary non-vintage champagne but specializes exclusively in prestige cuvées, of which the multi-vintage Grande Cuvée is the flagship. Consistently producing champagne that is among the most admired in its region of origin, Krug is the only house to persist in barrel fermentation of its entire production of base wine, in old 205-l/54-gal casks. Wines from at least six and sometimes nine different vintages make up the blend for Grande Cuvée, one of the most distinctive and long lived of champagnes. Grande Cuvée, with new packaging and a special bottle, succeeded the rather fuller-bodied Private Cuvée as Krug's most important product in 1979. In 1971, Krug acquired and replanted the Clos du Mesnil, a walled vineyard of less than 2 ha/5 acres. Its Chardonnay grapes provide one of Champagne's very few single-vineyard, or cru, wines of which the 1979 vintage was the first. Small quantities of the finest vintage Krug are released as Krug Collection about ten years after their initial release. Although the firm is run by members of the fifth and sixth generation of champagne-making Krugs, it has been owned by LVMH since 1999.
