Krug Collection 1989
Time’s second revelation of Krug 1989

A very limited number of bottles of Krug 1989 were kept in ideal conditions in Krug’s cellars. These bottles were tasted and appraised as they waited to blossom into a second life. Krug Collection 1989 is now at this stage. The opulence, roundness, and extroversion present in Krug 1989 find a beautiful harmony with an elegant and silky character enhanced by an expansive texture and a lingering finish.

This individually numbered bottle spent at least 23 in Krug's cellars further developing its depth and complexity. After regular tasting and appraisal, it received its cork as Krug Collection 1989 in spring 2012.


A very limited number of bottles of Krug 1989 were kept on the lees under ideal conditions, waiting for the moment they would blossom into a second life as Krug Collection 1989.

In the final days of spring 1989, no one could have imagined the historic harvest that awaited. After an astonishingly warm start to the growing cycle, the thermometer plunged to an icy low at the end of April, with the frosts taking their toll on the vines. But the long, warm summer that followed gradually brought the impacted vines back to life and gave rise to fruits that, despite their late apparition, ripened beautifully. When harvest time arrived, the grapes were in perfect health and expressed an exquisite balance of maturity and freshness.

When the time came to taste the wines of the year, each one capturing the essence of a particular plot, they showed an expressive and silky character with a wonderfully long finish. The Pinot Noirs were beautifully structured and persistent, the Chardonnays shone with expression and the Meuniers revealed a vibrant freshness.

Today, Krug Collection 1989 sparks new sensations that have developed under time's influence. As it gains yet greater depth, new, surprising facets of its unprecedented personality will continue to emerge.

The final composition of this bottle of Krug Collection 1989 is 47% Pinot Noir, 29% Chardonnay and 24% Meunier.

The breathtaking second movement of an already admired opus, Krug Collection 1989 is time's second revelation of Krug Collection 1989.

Tasting notes

Deep intense golden yellow colour that announces maturity, opulence, harmony and elegance.

Exotic, complex nose consisting of honey with spices and white fruits, truffle, earth, slightly browned apples, a hint of high-toned flowers, yeast, and a gentle nuttiness in the background.

Deep palate with bright, high youthful tones of pear, green apple, citrus fruits marmalade, fresh figs and even a touch of earth with a finish which goes on and on with undertones of mineral and spices.

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
