Krug was founded by Joseph Krug 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.
This is a serious wine . Deep, opulent and developed with a core of rich, textured fruit and oak. Long, powerful and spice-laden - the mousse is persisitent and intense . What a fantastic wine!
A perfect match for white meats, creamy cheeses, fish and complex salads. A versatile wine!
