  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    A full-bodied, muscular Champagne, still very fresh and complex. Hints at mushroom and sous-bois, spice and leather, with biscuit, coffee and citrus elements. The firm structure comes though on the finish, which remains fresh and smoky for minutes. Though this is rich, there's an austerity as well.

Krug Champagnes are famous for their rich, nutty, elegant and extremely food-friendly nature. Founded in 1843 by German immigrant Johann-Joseph Krug, the house has since been run by many generations of the Krug family, and the general style of the champagne has evolved along with that progression. Depending on the blend, a combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier is used, and fermentation takes place in small French oak barriques. Aging can run anywhere from five to seven years on lees, and in the case of the Collection series, as much as fifteen to twenty years.

Krug's most prestigious wine is its vintage Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay) from the grand cru vineyard site Clos du Mesnil.
