KRUG GRANDE CUVÉE 171ÈME ÉDITION
Krug Grande Cuvée was created by founder Joseph Krug, to create the best Champagne he could, every single year, regardless. There have been 171 such releases  Since 1843.

KRUG GRANDE CUVÉE IS UNIQUE:
▪ The 171st Ed. is 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.
▪ The art of blending wines from so many different years gives
Krug Grande Cuvée its unique fullness of flavours and aromas,
impossible to express with the wines of just a single year.
▪ The Édition number identifies a specific creation of
Krug Grande Cuvée. It corresponds to the number of years in the
House of Krug the founder’s dream has been re-created.
▪ A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives
Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition its distinct expression and
elegance.

TASTING NOTES:
▪ 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.
