    The Krug Grand Cuvée is a wine fully deserving of every big of prestige it commands, which is a lot! Krug is so far ahead of the competition that in an industry where production details are well-guarded secrets, Krug lays it all out for everyone to see — no one comes close to putting the effort and trouble that Krug puts into the Grand Cuvée. Blended from over 120 different wines from 12 different vintages going back to 1990, the wine displays depth and maturity and youth and freshness at the same time! Rich, ripened stone fruit flavors with aged white-Burgundy notes and warm brioche undertones. Its freshness is reinforced by a focused acid and a mineral-driven mousse. Despite its price, this is still one of the best values from Champagne.

    I was lucky enough to drink this with Krug's CEO, Margareth Henriquez. Margareth explained the new codes on the backs of the bottles, that allow the Champagne lover to learn the disgorgement date, year of the base harvest of the wine as well as the number of vintages blended in and the oldest of them. She was far too modest about this new feature, as it reverses the secretiveness for which Krug has long been known. Now, thanks to her influence, Krug is one of the most transparent houses. Our bottle was Krug at its toasty, extroverted best, with plenty of buttery brioche and mid-palate weight. It also had zing and acidity, and showed attractive aspects of both youth and maturity.

    Customers constantly ask me what my favorite champagnes are and I always tell people that each bottle is like a child to me and you can't possibly ask a mom to pick a favorite. But its a pretty well-known secret that Krug has always been a special little "baby" for me. Krug is hands-down my go-to tête de cuvée. While priced for those extra special occasions or a moment when you want to splurge, the Grand Cuvee over delivers and never disappoints. The grandeur of this cuvee is apparent immediately. Aromas of marzipan, Asian spice, white flowers and Meyer lemon are a mere tease of of what this cuvee possesses. The complexity on the nose is followed by a harmonious balance on the palate between the maturity of the oak-fermented reserve wines in juxtaposition with the focused, delineated acidity that comes from suppressing malolactic fermentation. Gorgeous now, even better with age, the Grand Cuvee is a must!

    Because you can never be too rich...or have too many bubbles! This Grand Cuvee is truly grand - very concentrated, with a silky smooth texture and length for days. Drink it on your private island, while sitting on your treasure chest and eating a foie gras cheeseburger! (tasted 6/10/09)

    I'm no pro, but I cut my champagne teeth through 4 masters of food and wine in carmel, ca. this champagne, when cold, presents lots of citrus. Serve this wine at 53 deg and watch it grow as it reaches room temp. The last two sips from your glass will be true Krug.

    Drink from 2009 to 2050
