    Discover Krug Vintage 2008 Champagne

    Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured its founder, Joseph Krug, by creating each year a new Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée, the fullest expression of Champagne, regardless of annual variations in climate.

    The House of Krug believes that each Krug Vintage expresses the unique character of a specific year. A Krug Vintage brings together the most expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by ageing for over ten years in the cellar. Each Krug Vintage is different: it is the music of that year, transposed into the world of Krug.

    Krug 2008 is the elegant and intense story of a cool and balanced year, which the Krug tasting panel has nicknamed “Timeless Elegance”. The unexpected diversity of the grape varieties is illustrated by great complexity, and we noted a very wide spectrum of flavours and aromas during the harvests. For the final blend, our Cellar Master selected wines that reflected all the complexity of 2008, in a remarkably structured composition imbued with the elegance of that year. After spending 12 years in our Cellars, Krug 2008 has become yet more expressive, offering a remarkable profile that is both precise and harmonious.


    Tasting notes

    At first sight, Krug 2008 has a bright, intense golden colour. It is expressive, rich and generous on the nose, with burnished aromas of honey, liquorice, menthol, orange and grapefruit peel. Lively, intense and harmonious with a wonderful tension on the palate, notes of quince, candied fruit and citrus, yellow kiwi, star fruit, honey, apple tart, petit beurre biscuits, orange peel, peony and fennel, as well as floral and mentholated touches that stand out upon tasting. Finally, the Krug 2008 vintage offers length on the palate, while remaining precise and remarkably structured.
