Krug 1996 Vintage Champagne Magnum 150cl Gift Box
Krug 1996 Vintage Champagne in a Magnum size bottle is a rich, radiant gold and already promises a masterful combination of maturity and acidity while its aromas tease the nose with the tartness of fresh pear and candied lemon, the roundness of ripe fruit and nougatine. Then, even as the tastebuds are rebelling in the smooth, mellow flavours of honey, gingerbread and mocha, this extraordinary champagne unleashes its exuberant crescendo of freshness that is at once totally unexpected and utterly Krug.
1996 in Champagne was a very special year, said to be one of the best vintages of the century in Champagne.Read more...

Krug 1996 is also the last Vintage blended by three generations of the Krug family working together; Paul II, Henry and Remi, and Olivier. 1996 is often compared to the legendary 1928. At the House of Krug, even Paul Krug II, known for his strictly objective observations, also noted it may well have been “the next 1928”. In other ways, it was strange and eccentric, it is also known as something of a ‘wild horse’, galloping between extreme maturity and freshness.
