Krug Champagne Brut Grand Cuvee 750ml

Krug Champagne Brut Grand Cuvee

97 points Wine Spectator : This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur and toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028.

95 Points Wine Advocate : Krug’s NV Brut Grande Cuvee ID 112001 -- disgorged already over the winter of 2011-2012 but then further aged before release -- reinforces the belief that, thankfully, even wine lovers of modest means who occasionally splurge on Krug Grande Cuvee will be rewarded with a wine that need not fear comparison with this house’s more limited and far more expensive bottlings, nor for that matter with any other wines of Champagne.

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 harmonious juxtaposition of creaminess and lees enrichment with bright, juicy citricity and of expansive richness with levity is stunning....Citrus zest notes segue seamlessly into the fine stream of CO2 without bitterness, while succulent white peach garlanded in lily-of-the-valley is laced with rich, subtly piquant nut oils and saliva-liberating salinity. Emerging suggestions of shitake and shrimp shell reduction compound the sense of capital-'U' umami in a vibrantly interactive and refreshing finish. A day after opening, this is even more vividly complex than it had been initially, with hints of fresh red raspberry lending an invigorating tang and sensation of berry seed-crunching that delivers strikingly harmonious counterpoint to both the luscious brightness of fruit and the nutty low-tones....The team at Krug has long taken pains to emphasize that the task of assembling their Grande Cuvee from a hundred or more lots reflecting reserves of widely varying ages is mind-bogglingly complex. So is the result. (DS).

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. The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.

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.
