Krug Grande Cuvée NV 170 Edition
Krug Grande Cuvée NV 170 Edition
Krug is undoubtedly one of the world's most prestige and exclusive Champagne houses. Krug was founded in 1843 by the German Johann-Joseph Krug. His dream was to make the best champagne, which could be released every year regardless of the variations in the climate. A dream that has clearly come true today. At the Krug champagne house, they believe that one should not divide the house's champagne into hierarchies. This can be seen by Krug today, where the house offers seven different champagnes, all with their very own expression, but without being divided into specific hierarchies. Instead, it is the number of champagnes that are released that decides the pricing.
The domain was sold to the luxury group Louis Vuitton-Möet-Hennessy (LVMH) in 1999, but there is still a member of the Krug family who manages the champagne House – called Olivier Krug, who is the sixth generation of the Krug family. This ensures that the house's authenticity lives on and that Krug's Champagne is still made according to the principles of the founder Johann-Joseph Krug.
Krug is champagne with individuality and a great personality. As the current cellar master, Julie Cavil says it best "Our job is to reunite in one sip the most complete sensory experience that a Champagne can offer". Something that you have to say is that they succeed time and time again at Krug.
The champagne is always fermented in oak barrels, which gives the characteristic rich, full and nutty taste, and also adds some sweetness. This champagne can be kept for many years of aging, but can also be enjoyed today.
Comments from tasting:
"A subtle nose of maple syrup and candied lemon opens up to reveal a hint of maize meal and shiitake. It leads onto a palate that is utterly streamlined and lemon-scented. This is serene but it comes with beautiful depth and a lovely note of autolysis, expressed as lemony, creamy polenta, enhanced by fine mousse. There are highlights of grapefruit zestiness with the lovely signature savouriness of Krug, expressed in just a hint of salty, grilled shiitake mushroom, revealed on the long and mouth-watering finish. A most brisk, taut, bright, but also rather subtle and profound iteration of Krug."
