To the delight of collectors around the world, a very limited number of bottles of Krug Vintage are kept in ideal conditions in the House’s cellars. They are tasted and appraised as they wait to blossom into a second life. Krug Vintage then becomes Krug Collection and reveals a new personality. Krug Collection Champagnes are true examples of time sublimation; maturity exposes hidden facets and depth. New flavours surprise, while old ones have gained structure. Krug Collection is always a wonderful discovery, a deeper story of the Krug Vintage. Krug Collection 1981 is time’s second revelation of Krug 1981.

In 1981, a mild, wet winter was followed by severe frosts in April and a long, sunny summer. It was a warm and bright October harvest that was exceptionally small, but grapes were nonetheless healthy with a good balance of maturity and freshness. Krug 1981 was created with wines of incisive freshness with 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, 1981 gave birth to a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir and 19% Meunier. This was the first time in the history of the House that a Krug Vintage was created with such a predominance of Chardonnay, a feat since only repeated once, over a decade later in 1998. As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug Collection 1981 will continue to gain with the passage of time.
The Krug Collection bottles are numbered and leave the House in descending order, thereby revealing how many of these precious Champagnes still remain. They are guaranteed by Krug with a certificate of authenticity signed by Olivier Krug, which can be provided upon request.

Tasting notes

Krug Collection 1981 is the second life of Krug 1981 with distinct and different flavours and aromas.

On the nose, rare aromas of white truffle and sweet spices, ripe apples and candied citrus, followed by mellow flavours of apricot and honey.

On the palate, it is unctuous and generous, with remarkable volume and opulence and an extremely long finish that leaves a lasting impression of elegance and distinction. Reminiscent of Krug 1981, the original freshness and vivacity of this Champagne remain.

「初めてクリュッグのグラスに出会った際の印象は、今も忘れることができません。シャンパーニュという名からは予期していなかった複雑な味わいに圧倒されまた。そこには、偉大なるクレッシェンド、ハイライトの饗宴、巨大な花火による華々しいフィナーレがありました。」

Food Pairing

Krug Collection 1981 is ideal alongside fresh white fish, shrimps or lobster with light lemongrass, mango or slightly spicy sauces. It is also a delicious match for carrot cake, aged comté, autumn fruit desserts or orange and ginger soufflé.

評価

正しい温度

KRUGシャンパーニュの味わいをご堪能いただくには9-12℃が最適です。 温度が低すぎるとシャンパーニュのアロマが引き立ちません。

ふさわしいグラス

KRUGは、The Josephというユニークなクリスタルグラスを制作しました。その形は、シャンパーニュの特徴を最大限に表現でき、アロマの芳醇な香りがよりいっそう引き立つようデザインされています。
