Description & Technical Information
-
Like Grande Cuvée, Krug Rosé is a multi-vintage blend. A relative newcomer first released in the 1980s, Krug Rosé NV is a ground-breaking champagne: the only prestige cuvée rosé to be blended from all three different grape varieties and from such a wide range of vintages. Pinot Noir grapes from the best hillside plots in Aÿ are fermented with their skins on for a few days. This fermentation extracts coloraturas and texture from the tennis and the red wine produced from this is then added to the rest of the blend and bottled in the spring following the harvest. Krug Rose is aged on the lees for at least six years, often nearer to ten. The texture of Krug Rose is unlike most other Rose Champagnes since it is fuller and more texturally pleasing due to the relatively high percentage of red wine used in the blend, this gives a greater colour and spice characteristic.

Krug Rosé Edition 19 NV is a blend of 37 wines and the youngest of which dates back to 2006 and the oldest 2000.

Krug ID: 313045 | Each bottle of Krug Rosé NV has a Krug ID on the back label which enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. You can do so using the smartphone App or on the Krug website.

Tasting Note: The resting time of at least six years in Krug's cellars gives this rosé its subtle bubbles and long-lasting elegance. There's plenty of fruit - raspberry, blackcurrant and hints of orange develop towards honey and citrus fruits. Krug Rosé is a remarkable Champagne which encapsulates the same creative spirit of Krug Grande Cuvée, again surpassing the very notion of vintage. One of the very best.
