Peerless and powerfully expressive Champagne
Chiselled, texturally rich and complex. Lightly golden in colour with delightfully inviting aromas of dried citrus fruit, gingerbread and buttered toast. Medium to full bodied with a broad yet delicate palate of tangerine, apricot, macadamia nut and marmalade. All kept in line by a striking acidity and a masterfully long finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The art of blending is taken to its creative peak here with the 170th edition of the Grande Cuvée from the House of Krug. Created from the harvest of 2013, this is a blend of 146 different wines from 11 different vintages from 2000. It is then cellared for 7 years. All this technical wizardry harmonizes to produce, even by Champagnes lofty standards, one of the most admired and distinctive wines of the region. Read More.
