Krug Grande Cuvée Brut is the expression of the artisan philosophy and know how to MAKE of Krug, a mixture of more than 120 different wines of ten or more years, a resounding and majestic champagne that balances with all natural richness and potency, freshness and Subtlety.

Its exceptional finesse is the result of 6 years in casks. The result is more than 20 years to elaborate each bottle of large Krug Cuvée.

This is the 166th creation of Krug Grande Cuvée and the fourth release to display the Edition on the label. The majority 58% is from its base year of 2010 and the remaining 42% is from 10 vintages of reserve wines the oldest being 1998 and the youngest 2009 some 140 wines make up the blend. The 2010 year looked great until August, the cool end to the growing season slowed ripening and most grapes in Champagne were picked early as weather threatened and hence 2010 will be a year of few vintage releases. Krug allowed enough of its plots to reach good maturity while maintaining healthy grapes. The stand out grapes from the vintage were the year's Meunier which had great fruit and energy. Some high quality reserve wines from 2000 helped with structure while the plots in Oger lent a generous ripe fruit roundness to this edition. 45PN 39CH and 16PM - The high percentage of reserve wines in the release has ensured it is of the quality we expect from Krug.
