    Description

    Krug Grande Cuvée is the timelessly stylish signature of Krug.

    Krug Grande Cuvée is the supreme demonstration of the Krug art of blending: this champagne is recreated every year from as many as fifty wines.

    These wines are from three grape varieties, twenty to twenty-five growths, and six to ten different years. Thus, each bottle is a master-piece, and is one of the most sophisticated and renowned champagne of the world.

    It is light, ancient-gold in color with a creamy texture, and a mousse of intense activity. The bouquet is highly expressive, with lovely nutty characters, almonds, toasted bread, complemented by notes of candied fruits and spices.

    It leads to a long, lingering finish, with a delicate vinosity.

    A breathtaking champagne, a sensational taste experience.
