Krug Rosé 17ème Édition

Composed around the harvest of 2004

Krug Rosé is inspired by the dream of the fifth generation of the Krug family to conceive a rosé Champagne that did not yet exist, one that could be re-created each year. Every Édition of Krug Rosé perpetuates this legacy. 

Krug Rosé is surprising, as it replaces a good red wine at the table with brio. This Champagne is a delicate blend of wines of the year with wines from selected plots of the House’s vast reserve library, completed with traditionally macerated Pinot Noir to add structure and spice. A rest of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Rosé its refined elegance and character.

This magnum spent at least 8 years in Krug's cellars developing its particular expression and elegance, receiving its cork in spring 2012.

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

A talk with Julie Cavil

Krug Cellar Master

Inspired by the dream of the fifth generation of the House of Krug to conceive a rosé Champagne that did not yet exist, every year a new Édition of Krug Rosé is created.
Krug Rosé 17ème Édition was composed around the harvest of 2004. With beautiful weather in harvest time from mid-September to early October, 2004 was a generous year after the challenging extremes of 2003. Nature's elation afforded a breadth of choice and when harvest time arrived the grapes were in very good condition.
When the time came to taste the wines of the year, the Meuniers revealed vivacity, tension and citrus notes, while the Pinot Noirs showed a beautiful structure. But it was the Chardonnays, especially those from plots in Trépail, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Oger, that particularly stood out for their remarkable freshness.
To balance and complement the fresh notes of fruit in the chosen wines of the year, a careful selection of reserve wines from the House's extensive library make up 47% of the blend. Preeminent among them are wines of 2003, particularly those from Pinot Noir plots in Ay and Verzenay, which brought their radiance, generosity and more mature expression of fruit. Chardonnays from the late 1990s from plots in Avize, Oger and Villers-Marmery lent their distinctive grace. Finally, a red wine from the House's plot in Ay imparted an enchanting colour, length and spiciness. This fusion promised to reveal the elegance and verve so characteristic of every Édition of Krug Rosé.
Krug Rosé is the most non-conformist of Krug Champagnes, for bold gastronomic adventures. Combining breadth, depth and grace, it dances a perfect tango with savoury dishes of all kinds, replacing a good red wine at the table with brio.

Tasting notes

At first sight, its subtle pale pink colour holds a promise of elegance.
On the nose, aromas of rose hips, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper and pink grapefruit.
On the palate, delicate flavours of honey, citrus and dried fruit with a long finish, enhanced by its fine bubbles complete the experience.

Ratings

"The silky texture of this vivid Rosé Champagne draped the palate, offering an aromatic panoply of flavors, from pure raspberry and white peach fruit to ground cumin and anise, violet, graphite, spun honey and toasted almond. Delivers a long, mouthwatering finish."

Wine Spectator 2015
Ratings : 95/100

"A Rosé which never plays with a flattering and primary character but enhances the depth and the finesse of a grand cru, with an infinite persistence."

Food Pairing

Krug Rosé lends itself to pairing ideas outside the box. For example, when it accompanies very good quality anchovies, a magical encounter occurs. The saltiness of the fish sublimes the fruit aromas and silkiness of the Champagne, turning the anchovies into a velvet sensation. Krug Rosé can also be enjoyed with foie gras, lamb, game, white meat, venison or even dishes with spices. Krug Rosé is not recommended for desserts, unless they are not sweet at all. Unexpectedly, it best accompanies very savoury dishes.

STORING AND SERVING

The Right Temperature

The House of Krug recommends that its Champagnes be served between 9°C and 12°C, as colder temperatures limit the expression of their flavours and aromas.

The Right Glass

To design a glass that would allow Krug Rosé’s singularly elegant and nonconformist character to be fully discovered, the House of Krug joined forces, once more, with master glassmaker Riedel.

The Influence of Time

Krug offers only prestige Champagnes, the most important characteristic of which is that they will gain beautifully with the passage of time.
