An incredible blend of wines, the Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition comes from a tradition by Joseph Krug himself. It’s fresh and citrussy on the nose, and has notes of hazelnut and nougat on the palate.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Joseph Krug, founder of House Krug, dreamt of crafting the best Champagne every single year. The Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition is the full expression of Champagne, the way Krug originally envisioned. It is a blend of over 146 wines from 11 different years, and has a light gold color and fine bubbles. On the nose, you get flowers in bloom, ripe, dried, and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread. On the palate, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche, and honey.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

The Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition is great to pair with aged Parmesan or mature Comte cheese. Enjoy it as aperitif with some cured meats, as well. It complements Indian and Moroccan cuisine, as well as fish, grilled shrimp, and oysters. Should you want to have it with dessert, it’s brilliant with tarte tatin, or a slice of carrot cake.

A NEW CHAMPAGNE

Joseph Krug established House Krug in Reims in 1843. He had a dream—to create the best Champagne he could, every year, regardless of environmental conditions and climate. He paid close attention to each vineyard’s character, acknowledging and respecting the unique characteristics of each plot, and the individuality of each wine. He also built quite an extensive library of reserve wines. Joseph Krug had a unique and original approach to making Champagne, forgoing the idea of vintages, and creating a full expression of the drink every year. Now on its sixth generation, House Krug continues to realize Joseph’s dream, creating Champagnes that have a consistent level of distinction and quality.

Storage Instructions

Fine sparkling wine must be handled with care. For short-term storage (a few days to a month), you can keep your bottle upright—but away from bright or artificial light. For long-term storage, especially for vintage cuvées, you must store the bottles on their side in a wine rack or cellar to keep the cork from drying out. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 10°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 1 to 3 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
