Krug Grande Cuvée is the emblematic signature of the House of Krug. Since 1843, Krug Grande Cuvée has embodied what Joseph Krug, founder of the House of Krug, sought to offer his customers: a Champagne of great richness and fine elegance, beyond the vintages.
Every year since the founding of the House of Krug, a new Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée has been created to offer the most generous expression of Krug Champagne.
Krug Grande Cuvée 166th Edition was created around the 2010 harvest. Despite the most turbulent weather, the grapes developed promisingly until cooler weather at the end of the season caused some concern. The particular attention paid to the vines during this delicate period and the respect for the unique character of each plot nevertheless ensured a healthy harvest with perfect ripeness. Krug's non-conformist approach in the creation of the Champagne led to compensate for the unusual lack of freshness of the Côte des Blancs Chardonnays by the nervousness of the year's Millers, particularly those of Saint Gemme and Courmas.
The blend is composed of 42% carefully selected reserve wines, notably wines from the year 2000 for their remarkable structure and others from Oger for their generous roundness. The 2006 wines from Verzy and Bouzy add the final touch to this blend and give the essential harmony to each Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée.
Krug Grande Cuvée was born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, who wanted to create the best possible Champagne every year, regardless of annual weather variations, and every year the House of Krug honors its founder's dream with a new Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée, the most generous expression of Krug Champagne.
