Description & Technical Information
-
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 buy Meunier grapes from two petit crus; the Cote de Bar in the warmest part of champagne nearer Burgundy than Reims and also from the village of Sainte-Gemme because of their intense fruit expression and freshness they bring to the blend.

This is the first release Krug Three Edition (Trois Edition) case including three pairs of Grande Cuvée NV bottles each with a different base vintage: 2003, 2004 and 2005. Just 100 Limited Edition wooden cases have been produced.

Krug Grande Cuvée 159th Edition NV (2003) | Krug ID: 211021
This is the 159th creation of Krug Grande Cuvée. Based on 2003, it is a blend of 120 wines from ten vintages: the oldest being 1988 and the youngest 2003. Reserve wines in this Edition - particularly those from 1996 and other truly great white wines from more recent years - give spark and vitality to the final assemblage. This edition was disgorged Spring 2011.

Krug Grande Cuvée 160th Edition NV (2004) | Krug ID: 214025
This is the 160th creation of Krug Grande Cuvée. Based on 2004, it is a blend of 121 wines from twelve vintages: the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2004. Reserve wines lend harmony to Edition 160, completing the blend without modifying the predominant characteristics of the year. This edition was disgorged in Spring 2014.

Krug Grande Cuvée 161st Edition NV (2005) | Krug ID: 313037
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. Reserve wines in this blend bring brightness, richness and depth to the 2005 wines, mainly through well-developed old Chardonnays and multiple expressions of Meunier from different vintages. This edition was disgorged in Summer 2013.

Each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée NV has a Krug ID on the back label which enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. You can use the ID codes above to discover more information about each blend on the smartphone App or on the Krug website.
