TIME’S SECOND REVELATION OF KRUG 1982

This individually numbered magnum spent at least 32 in Krug's cellars further developing its depth and complexity. After regular tasting and appraisal, it received its cork as Krug Collection 1982 in spring 2014.

As it is a magnum, we let it rest for even longer, waiting until the Champagne is ready to be enjoyed.

A very limited number of bottles of Krug 1982 were kept on the lees under ideal conditions, waiting for the moment they would blossom into a second life as Krug Collection 1982.

The year 1982 saw a confluence of near perfect conditions in Champagne. From the bud break in early spring to the flowering in June, the region experienced exceptionally clement weather. A long, warm summer ensued, during which the vines basked in the radiant sunshine, occasionally refreshed by just the right amount of rain. The result was a harvest in which nature's bounty and its expression were in perfect accord, offering an exceptional yield of beautifully mature grapes.

The wines of the year revealed remarkably expressive characters. The Pinot Noirs were generous and bold, the Chardonnays immensely characterful and the Meuniers had a touch of spiciness. All these traits would find their place in the final blend of Krug 1982.

With its elegant, lasting bubbles, exquisite colour and generous expression, Krug Collection 1982 has lost none of its beauty, rather over time it has gained a graceful poise and will undoubtedly continue to develop new, surprising facets of its unprecedented personality.

The final composition of this bottle of Krug Collection 1982 is 54% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 16% Meunier.

The breathtaking second movement of an already admired opus, Krug Collection 1982 is time's second revelation of Krug Collection 1982.

Tasting notes

Krug 1982 has emerged already as Krug Collection 1982, it is opulent and generous while increasingly serene.

On the sight, it is elegant, lasting bubbles and fantastic colour, seemingly untouched by time.

On the nose, mocha scents with hazelnut and an opulent rich maturity and depth, revealing a peppery tang.

In the mouth, rich honey and crystallized fruit and hints of tropical fruit, mango and mild spices which slowly gain strength.

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 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.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
