Les Créations de 2008 by Ozark Henry

The House of Krug and Ozark Henry are bringing music pairing from country to country to present Les Créations de 2008, a limited offer case containing
Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition and Krug 2008, two Champagnes crafted around the harvest of 2008.
To convey the sensations of each Champagne, Krug Lover musician Ozark Henry has composed two unique scores translating his own tasting experience into sound, which will be presented during live immersive events around the world.

A talk with Ozark Henry

Singer and Musician

Do you feel a kinship with the House of Krug?
Most definitely. The House of Krug is committed to offering the highest quality in every bottle it presents. Honouring heritage and valuing the Krug Lover, each Krug experience speaks to the senses. This is exactly how I approach my Music. Each song or album must translate a story into a sensory experience. I feel connected to the Krug winemakers and identify with the way they start with a blank page for each cuvée and re-create every Édition anew, always raising the bar of what Champagne can be.
What is your ideal moment to enjoy Krug Champagne?
Any moment that is worth sharing. I live by the ocean, so I often have friends over during the summer. The best times are when we get together at sunset, stay outside until late and just enjoying each other’s company. There is no better way to celebrate those moments than with a glass of Krug.
What is your favourite Krug Champagne?
My favourite would have to be Krug Rosé, the most daring, non-conformist of Krug Champagnes. When I first tasted it, I was completely surprised that this Rosé Champagne could replace a good red wine at the table.

About Les Créations de 2008

Krug 2008

A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the music of the year, captured by Krug. Krug 2008 is a story of harmonious intensity, complementarity and contrast, nicknamed “Classic Beauty” by the House’s Tasting Committee members.  

For Krug, the year 2008 gave birth to a great Krug Champagne balancing structured freshness and diverse flavours. Krug 2008 exhibits both power and elegance with a textured and intense mouthfeel very characteristic of the year’s wines, which uniquely reconciled intensity and quality.

Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition

Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2008, is a blend of 127 wines from 11 different years, the oldest dating back to the harvest of 1990 and the youngest to that of 2008. To complement the elegant intensity of the year’s harvest and craft the most generous expression of Champagne in 2008, wines from plots in the Montagne de Reims Sud were selected for their freshness, as well as from plots in the Côte des Blancs for their spice and warmth. In all, reserve wines from our vast library comprise 32% of the final blend.
