Krug Grande Cuvée 166 edition
Krug Grande Cuvée 166 edition is an iconic signature of Krug!
Since 1843, this Champagne has been honoring the dream of Joseph Krug, founder of the house. A passionate and perfectionist man who sought to offer his customers a champagne of great richness and a fine elegance; a perfect champagne, regardless of climatic hazards. Thus, every year, the house pays tribute to its founder with a new edition of Krug Grande Cuvée, the most generous expression of Champagne Krug.
This 166 edition of the Grande Cuvée comes from a blend of 140 wines from 13 different years, the youngest from 2010 and the oldest, from 1998. Each glass is the result of about 20 years of expertise. The final composition includes 45% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay and 16% Meunier. This bottle then rested around 7 years in the Krug cellars, thus gaining expression and elegance.
Krug Grande Cuvée has an intense golden color and fine bubbles full of vivacity, predicting breadth and elegance. At the tasting, Champagne lovers will find aromas of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, fruit jelly and citrus fruits. They can even lift notes of almond, brioche and honey as well as aromas of flowers, ripe and dry fruits, marzipan and gingerbread.
The advice of 12bouteilles: We recommend serving Krug Champagnes at 9-12°C to fully reveal their richness. This great wine can match with a multitude of dishes as an aperitif. It can be tasted now, or kept in the cellar, away from the light.
