Great sparkling wine ... everything you expect. Nice toasty taste but bright, almost citrus, nose. Paired extremely well with sushi flavors. Wish I could have more ...

Elegant yet rich nose,complex yet very approachable champagne. It is said this Champagne aims to be the greatest expression of pleasure and it definitely is very wonderful to drink!

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.

External Reviews for Krug 'Grande Cuvee' Brut

External Review

Pale bronze. Knockout nose combines smoke, maple syrup, fennel, chlorophyll, ginger, nutmeg and orange oil, all buttressed by a pungent, gamey, brothy element. Wonderfully ripe, smooth and harmonious, with the wineandrsquo;s sheer thickness and sweetness of fruit perfectly balanced by rather powerful but integrated acids. Compelling yeast autolyis character gives this multi-vintage blend great complexity. Remarkably slow-building, palate-staining finish. Ultimately comes across as sweeter than the comparatively forbidding Clos du Mesnil but you canandrsquo;t get either one of these remarkable wines off your palate.

External Review

...Toasty, smoky aromas are joined by fresh lemon and orange tones, against a bright mineral background. Very fresh and bright for this wine, showing green apple and Anjou pear flavors complemented by subtle buttered toast tones that build with air. ... Stephen Tanzer. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Krug Grande Cuvee 750ml

all enmeshed in a supple texture and graceful harmony. "\

A Champagne that fills the mouth with detailed, continuous, broad and precise flavors, Grande Cuvandeacute;e is composed for ultimate satisfaction. One taste lasts for minutes, though itandrsquo;s active rather than contemplative. If you consider individual flavors, the wine might suggest marzipan, quince paste, white chocolate, a dark range of fruits. It fills the mouth, playing in and out with each breath. The heady complexity of all the flavors taken together is what makes this wine symphonic, and completely engaging.

External Review

Rich and authentic, very much the real thing, with some mushrooms, a hint of lemon curd and a thought-provoking depth from age. It’s a bit somber, but beautifully made. This has been a favorite of connoisseurs — and other winemakers — for many years because it gets everything right but isn’t showy.

External Review

Creamy and honeyed, this is relatively simple compared to Grande Cuvandeacute;es of the past, though it has firm structure and length. Its depth of flavor plays off autolysis, creating the style of Champagne you might expect to find in the country house of an English aristocrat.

External Review

With its minimum of six yearsandrsquo; bottle aging, this is a beautifully integrated, mature wine. It has a wonderful toast character, layered over sliced pears and ripe acidity. With its complex poise between lightness and richness, this remains an intensely impressive wine.
