Krug Grande Cuvee MV (168th Edition)
52% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, 13% Pinot Meunier. Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have been creating the finest and rarest Champagnes. Crafting exclusively prestige cuvées every year making Krug one of the best Champagne house in the industry.Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to offer the very best Champagne every year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured this vision with each new edition of Krug Grande Cuvée: the fullest expression of Champagne. 168th edition is based on the 2012 vintage but has reserve wines in it dating back to 1996! This has the classic Krug toasty notes with stone fruit and delicious immediacy.
"Krug's NV Grande Cuvée 168ème Édition is a classic in the making, wafting from the glass with aromas of dried fruits, pear, toasted nuts, orange zest, honeycomb and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, generous but incisive, it's deep and elegantly fleshy, with a beautifully refined mousse and an enveloping core of fruit that's complemented by the characteristic Krug patina of nutty complexity imparted by barrel fermentation. Even if this is more open out of the gates than the 2011-based 167ème edition, the 168ème edition is also the more concentrated and intense of the two. It's based on the 2012 harvest, complemented by fully 42% reserve wines—a blend of 198 wines from 11 different vintages dating back to 1996." - William Kelley
