Italian artist Vhelade composed her own Krug Echoes for Les Créations de 2008. Daughter of a Sardinian mother and a Zairian father, she was born in Milan and from a young age showed an innate passion for classical dance, solfeggio, and piano. Her sources of inspiration come from a confluence of the two cultures, research and experimentation, electronic and jazz styles, as well as introspection and self-expression. She first tasted Krug 2008 and Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition with Cellar Master Julie Cavil and Deputy Director and former Krug Cellar Master Eric Lebel to understand, from a “behind the scenes” perspective, the art of creation of these two Champagnes. Greatly inspired by this exchange, she translated her impressions and sensations into two Krug Echoes that for her best embody each Champagne. The cocreation journey culminated with a live performance of each Krug Echo, paired with its respective Champagne, Krug 2008 and Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition, during an event for Les Créations de 2008 in Milan, Italy.
