Les Créations de 2004

17 August, 2017

The year 2004 will long be remembered in Champagne for its generosity. Nature’s elation afforded a breadth of choice, giving rise to two distinct expressions of nature at Krug: Krug 2004, the House’s most recent vintage, and Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition. To the delight of Krug Lovers all over the world, Krug 2004 and Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition will be available in a limited-edition wooden case offer named “Les Créations de 2004”.

Over 12 years after it entered Krug’s cellars, the House of Krug is delighted to present its most recent Vintage: Krug 2004. At Krug, each Krug Vintage is crafted to express the unique character of a particular year, captured by Krug. With harmonious tension and elegant radiance, Krug 2004 reveals the vibrant story of a fresh year – so much so that the House chose to give it the nickname “Luminous Freshness”.

With its delicacy, harmony and bountiful citrus of all types, Krug 2004 evokes the sensations of early summer mornings in Champagne.

True to the unique vision of the House’s founder Joseph Krug and drawing an unbroken line that stretches across six generations of the Krug family, Krug 2004 is being presented alongside a limited number of bottles of Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition, the fullest expression of Champagne, composed around the harvest of 2004. These bottles were intentionally kept in Krug’s cellars, waiting for this very special moment.

Joseph Krug’s pioneering vision

Champagne Number 1, which he described as the fullest expression of Champagne, later became Krug Grande Cuvée. Created every year, beyond the notion of vintage, Krug Grande Cuvée is a blend of over 120 different wines from more than 10 different years. Blending so many different wines from different years lends a fullness of flavours and aromas that would be impossible to express with the wines of a single year. It is a complete orchestra playing together in harmony.
Champagne Number 2, now known as Krug Vintage, is created “according to the circumstances of the year.” It is the music of a particular year, with its own unique melody, captured by Krug and enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. There are as many of these unique compositions as there are Krug Vintages.
“Les Créations de 2004” is an invitation to discover the principles of Champagne creation set out by Krug’s founder through two expressions of a single year. Krug 2004, the story of the year 2004 captured by Krug and Krug Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2004. It is an opportunity to taste two different expressions of nature, a pleasure trip to discover the year 2004 as lived by the House of Krug.
