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 20ème Édition is a blend of 66 wines from five different years, the youngest of which is from 2007 while the oldest dates back to 2002. The final composition is pinot noir (47%), chardonnay (37%) and pinot meunier (16%), with a touch of still pinot noir to add colour and structure. Reserve wines from the maison's extensive library made up 32% of the final blend. For this vintage, cellar master Eric Lebel had to rethink the way Krug's rosé champagne was created, using lesser-known parcels picked earlier to reveal powerful aromas and subtle flavours.

Krug ID: 216019 | 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.

Essi Avellan MW
“The 2007 base rosé is delightfully firm and fresh showing its usual ripe red fruit opulence complemented by a charming spicy edge. The long after taste echoes dried fruit sweetness, vanilla and subtle oaky spiciness. Charming already today but will develop into a beautifully Burgundian richness and satin smoothness.

“Mid salmon colour. Light nose, but much fruitier than the 26ème Édition. Good, positive dry finish. This would be a great pleasure to drink with food now. Clean and brisk finish but sufficient fruit on the way there. Lively – not to say playful.

The Wine Spectator
“The silky texture of this vivid Rosé Champagne draped the palate, offering an aromatic panoply of flavors, from pure raspberry and white peach fruit to ground cumin and anise, violet, graphite, spun honey and toasted almond. Delivers a long, mouthwatering finish.”
