Tasting notes: At first sight, the intense golden colour promises round generosity. Very expressive and indulgent nose revealing yellow and dried fruit, toasted almonds, hazelnut, maple syrup, meringue, and mandarin liqueur. On the palate, it is generous, deep, ample, and fresh with aromatic persistence and a long finish. It has notes of nougat, frangipane, pastry, tarte Tatin, plenty of citrus with a beautiful finish on pink grapefruit skin.
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.
