What is there to say? Krug is Krug. Remí Krug has been quoted as saying "if the Grande Cuvée is a basic non-vintage champagne then Rolls Royce is just a car." Or something similar. So true. It may seem overpowering for some people (it's not a bubbly you drink without noticing), but few champagnes evoke such a longing gaze in a wine lover. Rich, complex, nutty and fabulous.

A powerhouse. Big and brooding, showing toast, nut, coffee and oxidative aromas that pick up freshness on the palate, where citrus and dough flavors intervene. Really firm and focused, with complexity and character.

One whiff and you know this is serious stuff. The aromas of baking brioche, coconut, candied citrus and leather pick up roasted coffee and grilled nuts on the palate, permeating the senses. Profound depth and complexity, offering a unique Champagne experience. Drink now through 2006.

The name Krug is synonymous with prestige cuvée, as all of its Champagnes are on this level. The Grande Cuvée is very dry, with complex, mature aromas and flavors of honeysuckle and toast. It is very full and concentrated, with lots of winey flavors and a long finish — a great, mature white wine that just happens to have bubbles. It can age well for many years.

Krug, maybe the most exalted of producers, insists in calling this a multivintage Champagne and not nonvintage. This is yeasty and just lightly bready in scent. Vivid flavors of pears and sweet apple fruit (no skins) are detectable. Dry yet sweet, it features a near-perfect palate. Full-bodied and spirited, this is the type of bottling that makes the Prada crown go cuckoo for Krug.

Barrel fermentation of the base wines, uncommon in Champagne, and the addition of up to 40 percent reserve wines from older vintages combine to give the Champagne its distinctive flavor, depth and complexity. Although it’s owned by Louis Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy, co-directors Henri and Rémi Krug run this house like a small family estate.

This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur and toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028.

This multivintage blend nails the essence of Krug, intense richness of fruit and flavor without weight. Meaty mushroom and soy aromas are balanced by rich red fruits, citrus, toast and mineral notes. Long finish.
