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 1988 is a beautiful Champagne of extreme elegance and refinement with perfect roundness and length.
To express the character of this year, the composition includes Pinot Noir (50%), Chardonnay (32%) and Meunier (18%) from 21 different villages in the region.
This bottle spent at least 17 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in autumn 2005.
