More About Krug Champagne…
Krug was established in 1843 and has since specialised in producing only prestige and specialised champagnes. Krug is the only firm still producing all its champagne in small oak casks, an essential element for developing Krug's intense bouquet and complex flavours. Today, Henri, Rémi and Olivier Krug, who supervise every step of production, tasting and blending, represent the 5th and 6th generations.
With long periods of maturation (6-8 years), Krug champagne continues to age gracefully after release, developing an intensely rich, nutty flavour whilst remaining remarkably fresh.
All Krug champagnes are bottled during a single session, thirty weeks after the harvest. Once bottled, they are kept in the house’s cellars in Reims. Krug characterizes this final stage of its winemaking process through extended ageing on the lees. Indeed, Krug’s main champagne, Krug Grande Cuvée stays in the cellars for at least six years, Krug Rosé for five years, and Krug Vintage, Krug Clos du Mesnil and Krug Clos d’Ambonnay for at least ten years.
Krug’s finest champagne is Clos du Mesnil, a 100%-Chardonnay based champagne that comes from a small walled vineyard at Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. It is one of the world’s greatest Blanc de Blanc champagnes.
