K&L Notes

This 160th batch of Krug Grand Cuvée is based on 2004. Almost all of it was sold as Grand Cuvée, but a small amount was set aside to be sold in a six pack of Krug editions, which we split up to give more Krug lovers access to it. Going forward, each new batch of Krug will feature not only the ID on the back, but also the edition on the front, counting up from the foundation of the house in the 1800s. Since this was dated posthumously, it is bound to become a collectors item...That being said, it is all the better to drink it! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

    This is one of my favorite bottlings of Grand Cuvée, and after a few years of time on the cork, entering its prime drinking window. This is composed of 12 different vintages spanning 1990 to 2004, and the cepage is 44% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 23% Meunier. The chef de cave points out the 1995 Avize in this blend as particularly important, and I can't help but think I can taste the vivacious complexity of old Grand Cru Chardonnay in this spectacular Krug. If you are looking for bountiful toasty generosity, kaleidoscopic complexity and wonderful refreshment, it is all here in this bottle. I think this drinks far better than the 2004 vintage right now -- and better than almost all of the more expensive Champagne that we carry. Don't miss it!
    Drink from 2018 to 2034
