Wine Comments
A powerful, well-toned Champagne, featuring coconut, toast, grapefruit and coffee aromas and flavours. There are plenty of bass notes, punctuated by crisp acidity, and it all comes together on the fine texture, with aftertaste of roasted hazelnut and coffee. Drink now through 2018.

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.

The most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvee, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavours, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 92/100

Food Pairing
Enjoy with seafood and fish - especially freshwater varieties in a light sauce. Wonderful with a plate of oysters, or a selection of fresh goats cheese... and would make any early summer picnic special!
