It was a dream of the fifth generation of the Krug family to create a rosé Champagne that could be recreate every year with the same level of quality and distinction. Enter the Krug Rosé Edition 24, a delicate blend of the year’s wines, reserve wines, and traditionally macerated Pinot Noir. It has a subtle pale pink color, with fine bubbles. It exudes pleasant aromas of pink grapefruit, mulberries, rose hip, redcurrant, peony, and pepper. It is delicate on the palate, with notes of citrus, honey, and dried fruit, with a long finish.
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.
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.
