Krug Grande Cuvée: The Annual Re-creation of a Dream

7 April, 2021

 

Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Since 1843, the House of Krug has honoured this vision with each new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée: the most generous expression of Champagne.

 

Every year, to craft an Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée, Cellar Master Julie Cavil and the Tasting Committee audition around 250 wines of the year’s harvest and 150 reserve wines from 14 different years.

Julie records over 4000 tasting notes which he consults before any blending decision is made: the distinct melody of each wine, its particular character, level of freshness, intensity, roundness and depth – all are crucial to the creation of the whole.

Each Édition is created anew and rests for several years in our cellars before being presented. This year, when the 176th Édition of the founder’s dream will enter the cellars, 169th Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée, which has been patiently waiting, will be ready to emerge and be discovered.

The Édition Number of Krug Grande Cuvée
The Édition number corresponds to the number of years in the House of Krug the founder’s dream has been re-created. Every year, only once a year, a new creation, a sole blend, a unique bottling – thus a new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée – is born.
