"If Krug Grande Cuvee is a basic non-vintage [champagne], then a Rolls-Royce is just a car and the Pope is a priest." - Remi Krug
"Medium to full yellow colour, bright and fresh. Very toasty, bready complexity, nice developed bouquet, lots of biscuity and balsamic barrel ferment and pinoid development. Lots of barrel developed complexities. Very mellow, mature and complex. Good length and satisfying aftertaste. Excellent softness and the middle-palate is very rewarding. Rated 97 points. #1 NV Champagne tasted." - HuonHooke.com
The world's best known five-star champagne - "the most expensive, least consumed champagne in existence" Tom Stevenson - is a breathtaking, textured, sumptuous blend of at least 20 different crus and a decade's worth of vintages. It's magnificently complex, vinous, mature and mellow. The nose is extravagent and expansive, and the palate explodes with toast, soft spices, and dried candied fruit. It's gleaming, crisp and clean, and while it may no longer be owned by the Krug family it is still blended every year by a team led by Olivier Krug, who represents six generations of family craftsmanship and tradition.
"Marvellous complexity and balance. This is the definition of Krug: it combines features of the other Krug Champagnes with none of the extremes possible with other cuvees. Great acidity and a dry but soft finish that goes on and on; all things in superb balance. There's the biscuity barrel effect and the aldehydes, but they are in subtle helpings here. Truly a prestige Champagne, not merely a non-vintage. Rated 97 points. #1 NV Champagne tasted." - HuonHooke.com
"Krug is the champagne God gives his angels when they've been particularly good" - Paul Levy
