This November, House of Krug presents Les Créations de 2008, two different expressions of nature in 2008 – Krug 2008 is the story of the year, captured by Krug and Krug Grande Cuvée 164 ème Édition is the most generous expression of champagne, composed around the harvest of 2008.
For Krug, the year 2008 gave birth to a great classic balancing structured freshness and diverse flavours. Krug 2008 exhibits both power and elegance with a textured and intense mouthfeel very characteristic of the year’s wines, which uniquely reconciled intensity and quality.
To tell the story of 2008, a selection of Pinot Noir plots’ wines constitutes more than half of the blend (53%) coming primarily from Krug’s emblematic plots of the Montagne de Reims Sud, including Aÿ, Mareuil, Bouzy and Ambonnay. Meunier plots’ wines (25%) bring tension and citrus, while aromatic Chardonnay plots’ wines (22%) imbue the blend with fruit.
The extraordinary profile of Krug 2008 comes after 12 years in the cellars, gaining in expression, harmony, and finesse. At first sight, an intense and brilliant golden hue. Krug 2008’s nose is expressive and very complete with round aromas of honey, liquorice, menthol, orange peel and grapefruit. On the palate, notes of quince, candied fruits and citrus, yellow kiwi, star fruit, honey, apple tart, butter cookies, orange peel, peony and fennel, with floral and menthol undertones. It has a long, balanced and precise finish with astounding structure.
