At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year. A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the Music of the year, captured by Krug.
Krug 1998 offers astonishing purity, precision, elegance and a very long finish. For Krug, a focus on Chardonnay for in this vintage was an obvious choice due to the outstanding personality of Chardonnay grapes of the year. This vintage is known as our Hommage au Chardonnay as it is only the second Krug vintage, after 1981, where Chardonnay dominates.
This magnum spent at least 14 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in winter 2011 - 2012.
As it is a magnum, we let it rest for even longer, waiting until the Champagne is ready to be enjoyed.
