KRUG Grand Cuvee Brut, Champagne NV

In the words of no less than James Halliday, 'Krug is the greatest wine of Champagne'. Grande Cuvée is a touchstone for non-vintage Champagne. Krug is the only house still producing its wines in small oak casks, an essential element in developing the intense bouquet and complex flavours that characterise its Champagnes. Every Grande Cuvée release now carries an edition number, beginning in 2017 with the 163rd Edition. Typically, a Grande Cuvée ‘Edition’ is 20 years in the making, built around a single vintage but with balancing components from numerous other vintages and hundreds of different sites. It will also typically include substantial contributions from the three permitted varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Under the ‘Edition’ regime it is possible for the buyer to identify the exact makeup of each wine.

Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
