Krug 2004

Luminous Freshness

The story of the year 2004, captured by Krug. With harmonious tension and elegant radiance, Krug 2004 reveals the vibrant story of a fresh year – so much so that the House chose to give it the nickname “Luminous Freshness”.

Tasting notes

At first sight, the beautiful light golden colour promises radiant freshness.

The nose begins with an expressive bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and mirabelle. 

On the palate, a very balanced Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey giving  way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant finish.

Chef de Caves, Krug

Black and White Portrait of Eric Lebel With Krug Grande Cuvee
“Combining delicacy, balance and bountiful citrus of all types, Krug 2004 – named 'Luminous Freshness' by the House – evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne.”

After a chill start to the growing season, the beautiful weather from mid-September to early October ensured that 2004 was a generous year following the challenging extremes and small yields of 2003.
Nature’s elation afforded a breadth of choice and the harvested grapes were in very good condition.
For Krug, the year 2004 gave birth to highly expressive, bright, undeniably elegant and discreet wines with a shining structure.
Paying close attention to every vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine allowed Eric Lebel to identify the music of the year. He brought it to life by creating a composition marked by elegance and bountiful citrus.

Krug 2004 is a dialogue between shining Chardonnays (39%) and the backbone of Pinot Noir (37%) combined with the vivacity, tension and citrus notes of Meunier (24%).

The elegance of Krug 2004 comes after over 12 years in the cellars gaining in harmony, expression and finesse.
Krug 2004 is the last of the second trilogy in the history of the House, the first being 1988, 1989 and 1990 and the second 2002, 2003 and 2004. 
As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2004 will continue to gain with the passage of time.
Eric Lebel

Storing & serving

  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 1
    The richness of your Krug Champagne is fully revealed between 9°C and 12°C (49°F - 54°F). Serving your bottle too cold would refrain the aromas’expression.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 2
    Krug has created The Joseph, a unique crystal glass whose shape enables the bubbles to reach their optimal expression and allows the discovery of the incredible bouquet of aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 3
    If you do not have The Joseph glass, we recommend using a white Burgundy glass instead of a flute, to enable the expression of Krug Champagne’s flavors and aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 4
    As a Prestige Cuvée, Krug Champagnes age beautifully, the time revealing their richness and elegance.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
    Your Champagne should be stored in a wine cellar, or in a cool (between 10 to 15 °C - 50 to 59 °F) dry and away from light place, the exact conditions of Krug cellars.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 6
    The House of Krug’s unique craftsmanship is based on our understanding every plot through its individual wine. After several tastings by the tasting committee, a thorough assessment of each plot’s wine is achieved. In order to reveal the individual essence of every Krug Champagne, the most expressive wines are selected to play in each composition accordingly.
    No strong filtering or cold treatment is applied to any of our wines before bottling, thereby keeping a non-interventionist approach to the creation of every Krug Champagne, from vineyards to glass. As a result of this choice, while enjoying Krug, you may occasionally notice at the bottom of the last glass a few wine diamonds – harmless tartrate crystals which can form naturally while bottles are resting or being chilled. These are also known as quality crystals and we at the House of Krug felt it was important to share with you this further evidence of our commitment to preserving the most natural approach to the creation of all Krug Champagnes.

"We chose to convey the balance and citrus notes of Krug 2004 by composing a resolutely electronic piece but one with a bass guitar as its heart, evoking the fullness and elegant character of this Champagne."
