Delivery Details

Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition Champagne is the 171st Edition of the Krug Grande Cuvée and it was composed around 2015 and created by the Cellar Master to accentuate the year’s elegantly diverse aromatic expressions with a broad spectrum of different plots’ wines from 11 other years.  In all, reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 42% of the final blend, bringing the breadth and roundness so essential to each Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.

A blend of 131 wines from 12 different years, the youngest of which is from 2015, while the oldest dates back to 2000. Its final composition is 45% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay and 18% Meunier. A light golden colour and fine, vivacious bubbles, holding a promise of pleasure. Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread. Grilled notes and flavours of almond paste, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit. 

A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition its distinct expression and elegance. Krug Grande Cuvée, like all Krug Champagnes, will continue to gain with the passage of time.

Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition was composed around the harvest of 2015, a year marked by unprecedented heat and drought that prevailed from the end of May to mid-August, slowing grape development. Fortunately, rains and reasonable temperatures in the second half of August allowed the berries to grow in optimal conditions. The harvest took place under the rain between August 31 and September 21, with great heterogeneity from plot to plot.
Floral aromas on the nose are complemented by ripe, dried and citrus fruits alongside marzipan and hints of gingerbread. The palate is full-bodied with grilled notes, dried fruits, quince, lemon and toasted almonds.
Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition lends itself to a wealth of culinary combinations, from the simplest to the most sophisticated. Aged parmesan to turbot à la truffe. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif with Jabugo ham and mature comté or served to accompany oysters, grilled shrimps, Indian or Moroccan food, as well as desserts such as carrot cake, tarte tatin and cheesecake.

Each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée NV has a Krug ID code on the back label which enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. Full details of all the grapes used in this Edition can be discovered by inputting the Krug ID code into the Krug App.
