A talk with Myungsik Jang

Krug Grande Cuvée is lovely: with its generous flavours and aromas, I discover new sensations each time I try it.
Please tell us why you think it pairs so wonderfully with a Krug Champagne?
The delightful freshness and persistent delicate bubbles of Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition blend with the sweetness of the red onion purée. The garlicky notes of the boiled escargots gently temper the Champagne’s effervescence.
Close your eyes and take a sip. You would feel as though you are traveling to the winery on the hills of Reims.
What makes you a Krug Lover?
Krug makes your heart pound even before you take a sip. The very first mouthfull envelops your palate with subtle aromas and freshness; a beautiful effervescence in the background creates an unforgettable experience.
What is your favourite Krug food pairing?
My favourite food to pair with Krug Grande Cuvée is dauphinoise potatoes topped with caviar and sabayon sauce.
Why do you love Krug?
I still vividly remember the intense flavours and delicate touch of Krug Grande Cuvée that captivated me when I tried it for the first time. It has naturally become my go-to Champagne for special days.
