"Very lively, crisp nose. Tense and surprisingly vibrant for such a hot growing season – positively explosive in terms of its impact on the nose and palate. Lots of acidity and impressively long. A very good Krug, Grande Cuvée."

About the Producer
Joseph Krug wanted to offer his clients the ultimate pleasure experience in Champagne every year, regardless of the vintage. His philosophy was to select grapes from individual plots which will each express their distinctive features, their nuances and their uniqueness. Krug wines show the character and the contrast between the grapes from different plots. Their Krug Grande Cuvée is the archetype of Krug’s philosophy of craftsmanship. A blend of around 120 wines from ten or more different vintages, some of which may reach 15 years of age. It is this blending so many vintages that gives Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas, its incredible generosity and its absolute elegance - something impossible to express with the wines of just a single year.
Vineyard and Winery
Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition is a blend of 131 wines from 12 different years, the youngest of which is from 2015, while the oldest dates back to 2000. A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives this Édition its remarkable expression and elegance. In all, over 20 years of careful craftsmanship were necessary to enjoy this Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée which represents the 171th re-creation of the most generous expression of Champagne.
