Description
Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured this vision with each new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée: the most generous expression of Champagne.

It is a blend of 195 wines from 12 different years, the youngest of which is from 2014, while the oldest dates back to 1998. Its final composition is 51% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay and 11% Meunier.
A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition its distinct expression and elegance.
Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition was composed around the harvest of 2014, an erratic year in Champagne that oscillated between hot dry spells and cool rainy periods. Vines developed under good conditions, ensuring a generous harvest. The contrasting weather preserved freshness and resulted in great heterogeneity throughout the region, underscoring the importance of the House’s obsession of understanding every plot through its wine.

To create this Édition, the Cellar Master looked to accentuate the year’s elegantly diverse aromatic expressions with a broad spectrum of different plots’ wines from 11 other years.

In all, reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 45% of the final blend, bringing the breadth and roundness so essential to each Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.
