Krug Collection 1981


Krug Collection 1981 has evolved into a Champagne of outstanding maturity,
with a masterful balance of power and finesse.
Together with Krug’s other Champagnes, Krug Collection 1981 has made Krug
the world’s best-rated Champagne for years.

Note di degustazione

This Champagne is now part of the Krug Collection partly as in its second life, its flavours and aromas are so distinct and different. 

It truly tells an entirely new story with rare aromas of white truffle and sweet spices, ripe apples and candied citrus, followed by mellow flavours of apricot and honey.

On the mouth it is unctuous, generous, with remarkable volume and opulence, with an extremely long finish and a lasting impression of elegance and distinction.

Reminiscent of Krug 1981 as it was then however, its freshness and vivacity remain.

Serious Portrait of Eric Lebel
In 1981, a mild, wet winter was followed by severe frosts in April and a long, sunny summer, leading up to an exceptionally small warm and sunny harvest in October. The result is a very healthy fruit with a good balance of maturity and freshness.

Krug 1981 was created as a memorable Krug Vintage with grapes of incisive freshness and hints of citrus in its youth. From the first tastings of the still wines, the ‘grand blancs” were showing their outstanding character.

A year of Chardonnay captured by Krug gave birth to a blend between reds (31% of Pinot Noirs and 19% of Meuniers) and white grapes with 50% of Chardonnay, representing 19 different growths.

Krug 1981 was also the first time in the history of Krug that a Krug Champagne was created with such a majority of Chardonnay, a feat only repeated once since, over a decade later in 1998.

Together with Krug’s other Champagnes, Krug Collection 1981 has made Krug the world’s best-rated Champagne for years and like all Krug Champagnes, it can age beautifully.

Conservazione e servizio

  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 1
    La ricchezza del suo Champagne Krug si rivela totalmente tra i 9°C ed i 12°C. Servendo la sua bottiglia troppo fredda, gli aromi non si sprigionerebbero del tutto.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 2
    Krug ha creato Le Joseph, un calice in cristallo la cui forma permette al perlage di raggiungere la sua espressione ottimale esprimendo gli aromi in delicatezza.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 3
    Se non dispone di un calice Le Joseph, può magari optare per un calice da Pinot bianco rispetto ad una flûte, per permettere la massima espressione di tutti i sapori e gli aromi caratteristici dello Champagne Krug.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 4
    Trattandosi di Cuvée de Prestige, gli Champagne Krug invecchiano magnificamente, il tempo rivela la loro ricchezza ed eleganza.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
    Il suo Champagne può essere conservato in una cantinetta refrigerante come in un luogo fresco (tra i 10°C ed i 15°C), asciutto e lontano dalla luce, esattamente le stesse condizioni presenti nelle cantine Krug.
