About the Winery: The name Krug is synonymous with prestige. Founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, the reputation of the house has been built and maintained over centuries by the distinctive style and unparalleled quality of its champagnes. As the only House to produce five distinct Prestige Cuvees, many consider Krug the jewel in the crown of Champagne. Krug champagne is elaborated through the careful selection of 3 different grape varieties which once blended, give the wine its singular character. Pinot Noir provides remarkable intensity and longevity while Meunier furnishes a rich and fruity character and Chardonnay adds finesse and elegance.
