At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year. A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the Music of the year, captured by Krug.
The expression of the year as revealed by Krug: Ode to Nature. Krug is a charismatic Champagne which beautifully combines natural intensity, delicacy and bold elegance.
The House did not hesitate to create Krug, naming it Ode to Nature to express the music of an extremely serene and generous year with perfect conditions for highly-expressive wines centred around fruit of all types with a beautiful structure, great intensity and elegance.
The elegance of Krug comes after 13 years in the cellars gaining in harmony and finesse.
Krug Vintage cartoning Tasting Note
At first sight a lovely, bright golden colour.
A charismatic and fresh nose, with the promise of natural intensity and elegance and a strong presence of fruits of all types. A diverse bouquet of orange aromas with some notes of liquorice and light chocolate biscuit can also be enjoyed.
On the palate, this Champagne is astonishing, balanced and delicate with striking fresh, tropical, wild and crystallised fruits. It is a hymn to fruit – red, white and citrus – with notes of blackcurrant, chocolate, candied orange peel, cocoa beans, honey with hints of smoke and toast enhanced by a vibrant, persistent long finish.
