This limited-edition case contains three of Krug’s creations inspired by the year 2004, each one expressing its own unique music.

SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE

For the House of Krug, every plot of vines has its own particular melody. This Krug captures in a single still wine, which, like a fine musician, contributes its particular character to a Krug Champagne. Thus, Krug Clos du Mesnil 2004 is a virtuoso soloist expressing the purity of a single walled plot of Chardonnay harvested in 2004, while Krug 2004 is an ensemble of musicians playing the music of the year. Finally, Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2004 with wines from ten different years, is the full orchestra playing the most complete symphony Champagne can perform.

Over 12 years after they entered Krug’s cellars, these lyrical compositions inspired by the year 2004 are revealed to Krug Lovers in the Du soliste à l'orchestre en 2004 acte I case.

The circumstances of 2004

The beautiful weather from mid-September made for a generous year following the challenging extremes and limited yields of 2003. Nature’s elation afforded a breadth of choice in 2004, offering more characterful yet mature grapes than any previous harvest.

The vivacity, tension and citrus notes of the Meuniers and the shining Chardonnays combined with the backbone of Pinot Noir gave rise to a very balanced year.

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2004

THE SOLOIST EXPRESSING THE PURITY OF A SINGLE WALLED PLOT OF CHARDONNAY IN THE YEAR 2004
SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE

Located in the heart of the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most iconic villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region, the Clos du Mesnil is a 1.84-hectare vineyard that has been protected by walls since 1698. The House of Krug invites Champagne lovers to discover the extreme purity of this Champagne from a single plot, one single grape variety – Chardonnay – and the harvest of the year 2004.

Krug 2004

THE ENSEMBLE OF MUSICIANS PLAYING THE MUSIC OF THE YEAR 2004: “LUMINOUS FRESHNESS”
SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE

At the House of Krug, every Vintage is crafted to be different, celebrating the distinct character of a particular year. It is as if Krug 2004 were the music of the year, captured by Krug. With its delicacy, harmony and bountiful citrus of all types, Krug 2004 evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne. Its combination of radiant generosity and crisp precision led the House to name it “Luminous Freshness”.

Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Edition

THE FULL ORCHESTRA PLAYING THE SYMPHONY OF CHAMPAGNE, COMPOSED AROUND THE HARVEST OF 2004
SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE

Every year since the foundation of the House of Krug, a new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée is created to offer the fullest expression of Champagne. A very limited number of bottles of Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition were discovered in Krug’s cellars where they were then kept waiting for this precise moment.

Every year when creating a new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée, Eric Lebel is faced with a new challenge as he chooses from 250 wines of the year and 150 reserve wines to create the blend. Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2004, is a blend of 121 wines from 12 different years, the youngest of which dates back to 2004 and the oldest to 1990. Blending so many different wines from different years lends the fullness of flavours and aromas that would otherwise be impossible to express with the wines of just one year.

This limited-edition offer will delight Champagne lovers across the world. It is a tribute both to this exceptional year and to the unique craftsmanship of the House of Krug, which allows for the creation of different expressions of nature, all of the same level of distinction.
