Krug Grande Cuvée 171st Edition Champagne 75cl Gift Box
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.
