Krug Collection 1985
TIME’S SECOND REVELATION OF KRUG 1985

Krug Collection is always a surprise, a new story of a Krug Vintage.
Krug Collection 1985 is the time’s second revelation of Krug 1985.
It is a blend of broad, concentrated, deep, with lots of fruit aromas wines coming from 30 different growths.

Portrait of Eric Lebel Smiling
This is one of the last 183 magnums of Krug 1985 kept in the cellars in ideal conditions waiting to blossom into a second life. After more than 30 years of ageing, this magnum left the Krug cellars to receive its cork in Autumn 2014 as Krug Collection 1985. 

The year 1985 will be remembered for record-breaking frosts in January, rainy and cold June and from July to the end of the cycle climate was sunny with some periods of heat and storms. 

The result was a harvest of low yields (normal for Chardonnays and very low for Pinot Noirs) with extremely high quality, remarkable for the balance of its wines.

Krug Collection 1985 is the time’s second revelation of Krug 1985. It is a blend of broad, concentrated, deep, with lots of fruit aromas wines coming from 30 different growths. Pinot Noirs (48%), Chardonnays (30%) and Meuniers (22%) are at the origin of this very unique and original Champagne remarkable for the balance and quality of its wines.

Henri Krug, president of the house from 1977 to 2002, considered 1985 as the most difficult year for the recreation of Krug Grande Cuvée. Krug 1985 today as Krug Collection 1985 has gained in depth and beauty; it has evolved into Champagne which combines opulence and intensity as well as freshness and vitality. It is very Krug Champagne! Like all Krug Champagnes, it can continue to age beautifully.

Tasting notes

Krug Collection 1985 has gained depth and beauty, with an astoundingly velvety deep golden colour. Aromas which build in depth include warm bread fresh from the oven, mild spices and even pepper and wax. On the mouth these aromas come together in unctuous, generous opulence with honey and toffee flavours while it highlights delicate, rare flavours of white truffle as well as perfectly ripened figs and even blackcurrant, bursting with sunshine.

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.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
    Your Champagne should be stored in a wine cellar, or in a cool (between 10 to 15 °C - 50 to 59 °F) dry and away from light place, the exact conditions of Krug cellars.
