Delivery Details

Krug Grande Cuvee Brut 168th Edition is a blend of over 198 wines from 11 different vintage years. The intense flavours and aromas of Krug Grande Cuvee Champagne would be impossible to express in the wines of just a single year. The youngest year used to create the 168th edition is 2012 with the oldest dating back to 1996. 

This Champagne, as with all Krug editions, will continue to gain excellence with time. This edition has already spent seven years in Krug cellars and the composition of 52% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 13% Meunier gives this wine its distinct expression and elegance.
