Krug - Grand Cuvée 169ème ÉditionChampagne
Composed around the 2012 harvest, Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition is an expressive and elegant blend of 198 reserve wines from 11 different years.
Henri Krug said, 'Krug Grand Cuvee is as a symphony, a composition where all the instruments play together, complimenting each other in total harmony'.
The composition of the cuvee is a stunning mosaic of flavours where the three champagne grapes, 20-25 growths and 6-10 different years, combine to give Grand Cuvee its complexity, elegance and consistency year after year, blend after blend.
The bouquet is wonderfully creamy, leading to a magical combination of weight and balance on the palate.
The long, lingering finish is both nutty and toasty, ending with a final flourish of freshness.
