Krug Grande Cuvée 1.5L Magnum

Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured this vision with each new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée: The Most Generous Expression of Champagne.

Krug Grande Cuvée is re-created every year, beyond the notion of vintage and is always a blend of over 120 individual wines from more than 10 different years.

Krug is well and truly one of the great wine experiences in the world. It is an exercise in balance and poise, being at once as fine and delicate as crystal and rich with meaty nuttiness. With an almost ethereal bead, there is plenty of toast, dried fruit and hazelnut complexity.

FOOD PAIRING

Krug Grande Cuvée 167ème Édition lends itself to a wealth of culinary combinations, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, from an aged parmesan to turbot à la truffe.
