This is an opportunity to taste six editiona of Krug Grande Cuvée NV at your house or at a location of your choosing with an option to be tutored through the tasting. Nick our founder presents most of these tastings, however given enough time we may be able to invite someone from Krug to present the champagnes.

Krug Grande Cuvée is the archetype of Krug's philosophy of craftsmanship and savoir faire: a blend of around 120 wines from ten or more different vintages, some of which may have reached twenty years of age. Blending so many vintages gives 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. Over twenty years are needed to craft each bottle and its exceptional finesse is the result of a stay of at least another six years in the cellars: the first prestige cuvée re-created each year, beyond the very notion of vintage.

Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 161 NV: This is the 161st creation of Krug Grande Cuvée. Based on 2005, it is a blend of 134 wines from twelve vintages: the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2005. Lots of hints of lemon on both the nose and the palate. Seems to be slightly less developed than the other Editions. Nice balance and almost gooseberry flavours on the finish. A very different Grande Cuvée blend fully expressing the unique characteristics of the 2005 vintage.

Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 162 NV: This is the 162nd creation of Krug Grande Cuvée. Based on 2006, it is a blend of 142 wines from eleven vintages: the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2006. Light lemon freshness with bundles of dried apricot. Slight spice and orange peel taste. Big acidity but very light. The palate is all sherbet and lemon with red berries. Impressive champagne based on one of the best vintages of the century so far.

Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 163 NV: This is the 163rd creation of Krug Grande Cuvée and the first release to display the Edition on the label. Based on 2007, it is a blend of 183 wines from twelve vintages: the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2007. Bright lemon and grapefruit nose. Slight honey notes. Lighter than the other Editions with red fruit flavours on the palate. Lots of acidity and oak character seems prominent. Incredible non-vintage.

Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 164 NV: This is the 164th creation of Krug Grande Cuvée and the second release to display the Edition on the label. Based on 2008, it is a blend of 127 wines from eleven vintages: the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2008. Exceptional freshness in the mouth is accompanied by notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat and jellied fruit. Rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit are enhanced by the subtlety of the fine and elegant bubbles. This has tremendous power of fruit, brioche, backed apples, vanilla and spice and a length of flavour that goes on and on. The precision of recent releases is unprecedented and just how many decades they might hold in the cellar is anyone's guess. The ultimate non-vintage.

Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 165 NV: This is the 165th creation of Krug Grande Cuvée and the third release to display the Edition on the label. Based on 2009, it is a blend of 127 wines from nine vintages: the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2009. Notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied fruits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey. You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully.The precision of recent releases is unprecedented and just how many decades they might hold in the cellar is anyone's guess. The ultimate non-vintage.

Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 166 NV: This is the 166th creation of Krug Grande Cuvée and the fourth release to display the Edition on the label. The majority 58% is from its base year of 2010 and the remaining 42% is from 10 vintages of reserve wines the oldest being 1998 and the youngest 2009 some 140 wines make up the blend. There is a forward aromatic of orange blossom along with ripe and lemon fruits and hints of spice and ginger. The palate is an abundance of flavour with hazelnut, almonds, dried lemon, almonds and brioche are present with hints of honey. Strong and fresh mouthfeel with a long finish.
