Generous expression

When Joseph Krug founded the House of Krug in 1843, his dream was to craft the very best champagne he could offer, every year, regardless of annual climate variations. Every year since 1843, the House of Krug honours his dream with a new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée, the most generous expression of champagne. Today, over one hundred and seventy-five years after Krug Grande Cuvée was first created, the House of Krug presents Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition.
Set to release this month at partnered outlets in Hong Kong and Macau, Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition was composed around the harvest of 2013. The season began with a seemingly endless winter, followed by a rainy and cool spring. While summer was hot and sunny, the season was also marked by hailstorms that took their toll on the vineyards. The resulting wines were complete and expressive.
A light golden colour with fine, vivacious bubbles holds a promise of pleasure. On the nose are the aromas of flowers in full bloom, as well as ripe, dried, and citrus fruits, marzipan, and gingerbread. The palate displays an alluring combination of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche, and honey. This champagne can be enjoyed as an aperitif, paired with the sharp and nutty tasting notes of Jabugo ham and mature Comté, or served to accompany seafood, Indian or Moroccan food, and desserts such as carrot cake, tarte tatin and cheesecake.
