Krug Grand Cuvée Champagne is as a symphony, a composition where all the instruments play together, complimenting each other in total harmony. Krug's bouquet is wonderfully creamy, leading to a magical combination of weight and balance on the palate. The long, lingering finish is toasty, ending with a final flourish of freshness.
Oddly, 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 flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth. Score: 93. —Robert Parker, December 2005.
This multivintage blend nails the essence of Krug, intense richness of fruit and flavor without weight. Meaty mushroom and soy aromas are balanced by rich red fruits, citrus, toast and mineral notes. Long finish. Score: 94. —Joe Czerwinski, December 01, 2005.
An enchanting bouquet. Full round aromas. A flavor of roasted hazelnuts whos depth is drawn out in the mouth ending in a flowery fresh note.
The composition of this non vintage cuvee is a stunning mosaic of flavours where the three champagne grapes, 20-25 growths and 6-10 different years, combine to give Grand Cuvée its complexity, elegance and consistency year after year, blend after blend.
Accompanies food well as long as not too acid or sweet, and all traditional and excotic dishes.
