Black And White Portrait of Eric Lebel With Krug Champagne
This spent at least 12 years in Krug’s cellars, receiving its cork in autumn 2017.

Composed of a selection of the year’s most characterful wines, Krug 2004 is the expression of the year 2004 revealed by Krug.

The year 2004 called for patience with a crisp winter and chill spring keeping temperatures in Champagne cool for an exceptionally long time. May brought a gentle warmth to the region and in late summer the grapes ripened perfectly in the radiant sunshine.

The beautiful weather in harvest time from mid-September to early October made 2004 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 wines of the year were at once highly expressive, bright and undeniably elegant. 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. Combining generosity and precision, elegance and character, Krug 2004 tells the vibrant story of a fresh year.

The final composition of this bottle of Krug 2004 is 37% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay and 24% Meunier.

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.
Eric Lebel

Tasting notes

At first sight, the beautiful light golden colour promises radiant freshness.

The nose begins with an expressive bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and mirabelle. 

On the palate, a very balanced Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey giving  way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant finish.

Storing & serving

  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 1
    The richness of your Krug Champagne is fully revealed between 9°C and 12°C (49°F - 54°F). Serving your bottle too cold would refrain the aromas’expression.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 2
    Krug has created The Joseph, a unique crystal glass whose shape enables the bubbles to reach their optimal expression and allows the discovery of the incredible bouquet of aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 3
    If you do not have The Joseph glass, you may prefer a white Burgundy glass to a flute, to enable the expression of Krug Champagne’s flavors and aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 4
    As a Prestige Cuvée, Krug Champagnes age beautifully, the time revealing their richness and elegance.

“It ignited all my senses, the flavours almost danced around on my palate. It also has this unique, focused quality – asif you are alone with it. In some ways I can compare the experience of tasting Krug 2004 to performing solo.”
