From Soloist to Orchestra in 2006

26 October, 2020

At Krug, each individual plot, through its wine, is considered to be a fine musician contributing its own unique character to a Krug Champagne.

Thus, Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 – the purity of a single walled plot of Chardonnay harvested in 2006 – is a virtuoso soloist, while Krug 2006 is an ensemble of musicians playing the music of the year. Finally, Krug Grande Cuvée 162ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2006 with wines from 11 different years, is the full orchestra playing the most complete symphony Champagne can perform.

From Soloist to Orchestra in 2006 is a tribute to both a remarkable year and the unique craftsmanship of the House of Krug, which enables the creation of different expressions of nature, all of the same level of distinction. To the delight of Krug Lovers all over the world, this limited-edition case is an opportunity to discover these three musical expressions.

Close to 13 years after it entered Krug’s cellars, the House of Krug presents its most recent Champagne from a tiny walled plot of Chardonnay vines in the heart of the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger: Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006.

It is an extremely elegant Champagne offering delicate aromas of citrus, barley sugar and dried fruits with balance and freshness. The palate is lace-like, generous and round with beautiful intensity. Initial hints of madeleine cake and brioche give way to notes of pastry, tarte tatin, lemon meringue, bitter orange and a little spice. The finish is long, with great tension and notes of candied ginger. After over 12 years in Krug's cellars, Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 reveals a precise signature and striking grace. As all Krug Champagnes, Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 will continue to gain with the passage of time. 

Krug 2006
The Ensemble of Musicians Playing the Music of the year 2006: “Capricious Indulgence”

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 story of the year, captured by Krug. Krug 2006 expresses indulgence, charm, roundness and elegance, which is why the House nicknamed it “Capricious Indulgence.”

This Champagne encapsulates the generous outcome of a capricious and wonderful year to create a classic of the House. For this composition, the Cellar Master selected the wines that best exhibited the unique, silky roundness of 2006 with good structure and length. Paying close attention to every vineyard’s character and respecting the individuality of each plot through its wine allowed the House the music of the year, brought to life in a composition marked by an intense, generous and elegant melody. As all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2006 will continue to gain with the passage of time.

Krug Grande Cuvée 162ème Édition
The full orchestra, playing the symphony of Champagne

Krug Grande Cuvée 162ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2006, is a blend of 163 wines from 11 different years, the oldest dating back to the harvest of 1990 and the youngest to that of 2006.

This Champagne is composed of 40% reserve wines from 10 different harvest years, selected from Krug’s vast library for their freshness, vivacity and tension to contrast the indulgent and round wines of 2006. As all Krug Champagnes, Krug Grande Cuvée 162ème Édition will continue to gain with the passage of time.
