Description

An exceptional champagne that allures with finesse and complexity

The estate

The Krug Champagne House was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, a visionary with great passion. It holds a unique library of over 150 reserve wines, some of which are over 15 years old.

The vineyard

With more than 250 different plots, including the prestigious Clos du Mesnil and the Clos d’Ambonnay, the Maison Krug owns a heritage of exceptional vineyards in Champagne.

The wine

Every year since its foundation, Krug unveils a new edition of its Grande Cuvée, in order to present the most generous expression of champagne.

This Krug Grande Cuvée 171st Edition is a blend of 131 wines from 12 different years. The youngest dates from 2015 and the oldest from 2000. The reserve wines from Krug's vast library make up 42% of the final blend, giving this edition a rare fullness and roundness. Resting for around seven years in the House cellars gives it its particular expression and elegance. Each glass contains the result of more than 20 years of in-depth expertise.

Blend

Pinot Noir (45%)
Chardonnay (37%)
Pinot Meunier (18%).

Characteristics and tasting tips for Grande Cuvée 171st Edition from Krug

Tasting

Colour
The champagne is a beautiful pale gold colour. The effervescence is particularly fine.

Nose
The nose mingles delicious fragrances of flowers and ripe, preserved and dried citrus fruit with gourmet notes of marzipan and gingerbread.

Palate
Scents of marzipan, quince, lemon and limoncello combine harmoniously on the palate with subtle toasted and dried fruit notes.

Food and wine pairing

With its structure and elegance, this exceptional champagne pairs perfectly with many dishes for various tasting moments.

Ideal as an aperitif, served with Jabugo ham, oysters, grilled prawns or mature Comté cheese, this cuvée can also be enjoyed with Indian or Moroccan dishes, turbot with truffles, cheese (aged Parmesan) or as a dessert, such as carrot cake, tarte tatin or cheesecake.
