Krug Rosé 23ème Édition

Composed around the harvest of 2011

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 bottle spent at least 7 years in Krug's cellars developing its particular expression and elegance, receiving its cork in summer 2017.

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 23ème Édition was composed around the harvest of 2011, an atypical year with high temperatures followed by cold, wet weather and low sun. The year’s unusual climate made it the second earliest harvest since 1822. In the end, grapes were healthy and of surprising structure, with wonderfully balanced Pinot Noirs and particularly expressive wines from plots in Mareuil sur Ay.
To create this Champagne, carefully selected plots’ wines of the year were blended with reserve wines from 9 other years, including the 2007 Meuniers of some plots from Sainte-Gemme chosen for their fruit character, as well as the 2009 Chardonnays of some plots from Trépail to add vivacity and tension.
In all, reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 56% of the final blend of this 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 recommends that its Champagnes are served between 9°C and 12°C, as colder temperatures limit the expression of their flavours and aromas.

The Right Glass

The House of Krug has partnered with renowned crystal maker Riedel to design a glass that would most generously reveal the fullness of flavour and aromas of Krug Champagnes.

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.
