Description & Technical Information
-
This Limited Edition Krug Les Creations is a decadent celebration of one of Champagne's superb vintages. This case includes three 75cl bottle each of Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 160 NV (based on 2004) and Krug 2004.

Weather: A crisp winter combined with a cold but bright spring ensured that Champagne endured a cold start to the year. The early summer months brought sunshine and warmth. The grapes were healthy and ripe during the harvest season in September. Cool nights and hot days created a balanced maturity that is evident in the resulting champagne, the highest maturity for a few years. The vintage has been named "Luminous Freshness" to express the music of an extremely bright and very fresh vintage.
