Krug - Vintage - Brut

Krug Vintage Brut is a champagne that is sure to impress even the most discerning of wine connoisseurs. This champagne is made from a blend of the finest grapes, carefully selected from the best vineyards in the Champagne region of France. The result is a champagne that is rich, complex, and full of character.

The taste profile of Krug Vintage Brut is truly exceptional. It has a deep, golden color and a fine, persistent mousse. On the nose, it is rich and complex, with aromas of toasted bread, honey, and dried fruit. On the palate, it is full-bodied and intense, with flavors of ripe fruit, brioche, and a hint of spice. The finish is long and elegant, with a refreshing acidity that balances the richness of the wine.

The history of Krug is one of passion, dedication, and excellence. Founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, the house has been producing some of the finest champagnes in the world for over 175 years. Krug Vintage Brut is a testament to the house's commitment to quality and tradition.

Krug Vintage Brut is perfect for any special occasion, whether it's a wedding, anniversary, or simply a night in with friends. It pairs well with a variety of foods, including seafood, poultry, and cheese. Enjoy it in a flute glass, chilled to perfection, and savor the rich, complex flavors of this exceptional champagne.

As I reported when it was released, Krug's 2006 Brut is clearly one of the vintage's highlights. Offering up aromas of dried fruits, pear, freshly baked bread, caramelized apples, honeycomb and toasted sourdough, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with superb concentration, racy acids and an impressively tightly wound profile for this demonstrative vintage. I observed last year that this is surprisingly reserved for the vintage, and if anything, that quality is even more in evidence today. While many 2006 Champagnes are likely to be at their best in their demonstrative youth, this is one wine unquestionably built for the long haul.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Syrah (13.6% natural alcohol). A more pigmented dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic notes of cassis, black cherries, spice box and cedary fruit. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins, a fleshy, seductive mouth-feel and a good finish, this wine is close to full maturity, but will easily last another 12-15 years. Its balance, purity and overall equilibrium are impressive. Tel. (707) 967-2200
Krug's 2002 Brut (ID 415064 – disgorged IV/2015) has an intense citrus colour and opens with a generous, intense yet fine and precise bouquet that indicates great depth and elegance. Red fruit flavors on the nose lead to a generously rich yet pure, highly refined and elegant palate, with lots of ripe cherry fruits and delicious yeasty flavors. This is a highly complex and tensioned but beautifully balanced 2002 with a charming dosage that gives perfect roundness. The finish, however, is clear, fresh and well-structured, if not taut, and very mineral. Tasted in Reims in April 2018.

Joseph Krug had a vision, to create champagne every year regardless of variations in vintage. He felt the essence of champagne was pleasure and when he founded Krug in 1834 he worked tirelessly to pursue his dream. Joseph’s knowledge has been passed down through the family and as such his great great great grandson, Olivier Krug is the director today.

Interview with Olivier Krug, Director

As the sixth generation director, what do you feel was the most important moment in Krug’s history to date?

In my eyes, the most important day was, in 1842, the day when Joseph Krug, my great great great grandfather, decided to create his own house, producing solely Prestige and exceptional champagnes. His vision was that champagne is about pleasure so he decided to follow his dream, which was to offer every year, whatever the climatic challenges, the best and most generous expression of champagne. Not only did he achieve this but we are proud to share with you today Krug Grande Cuvée 165th Edition, the 165th time in a row that we have recreated his dream.

What is the idea behind the Krug ID?

The Krug ID allows every Krug Lover to get the story of her/his bottle. Not only does it give a direct access to all craft information but also lots of helpful advice on service (never use a flute nor serve it too cold), and pairings. Besides the obvious food pairings, I am especially enthusiastic with music pairings and I can confirm that the right music with the right champagne does enhance the spectrum of discoveries.

When did you first taste champagne?

I had Krug on my lips the day I was born, even before mother’s milk. Consequently, I must be the only one who forgot his first Krug.

In 1668, Dom Pérignon is said to have discovered how to make sparkling wine; today his technique is used the world over, although Champagne continues to make some of the finest. France’s most northerly wine region, Champagne is now home to 15,000 growers and 290 ‘houses’. A blend of grape varieties is usually required: white Chardonnay to add fruit and elegance, and two reds – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – to provide body and backbone.
