Wine Comments
A very limited number of bottles of Krug 1976 were kept in ideal conditions in Krug’s cellars. These bottles were tasted and appraised as they waited to blossom into a second life. Krug Collection 1976 is now at this stage. The opulence, roundness, and extroversion present in Krug 1976 find a beautiful harmony with an elegant and silky character enhanced by an expansive texture and a lingering finish. Now over 37 years later, Krug Collection 1976 sparks new sensations that develop under time’s magical influence, expressing an outstanding new facet of this Champagne to the delight of collectors around the world.

The Domaine
The grandest of the Grande Marques.
Johann-Joseph Krug, who was born in Mainz, founded Champagne Krug in 1843, having previously worked at Jacquesson and marrying Adolphe Jacquesson's sister-in-law. The Company is still controlled by the Krug family - Olivier Krug being the current incumbent - although ownership was sold to LVMH in 1999.
Krug are the only House to barrel ferment all their wines - in "de-seasoned" 205 litre casks of Argonne oak. The rich Krug style also comes from prolonged lees ageing and the very high proportion of reserve wines in the blend.

Food Pairing
Sushi, scallops, oysters and white fish.
