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.
Tasted again for the New Year 2015. Honey notes, yet rich, savoury, buttery! Lives up to it's good name!

External Reviews for Krug 'Grande Cuvee' Brut
The beauty of Krugandrsquo;s rosandeacute; is the sense of bottle age, of that extra richness. That means the wine is not just the sum of its delicious red berry fruits. Itandrsquo;s also the way the wine is rounded out, filled with secondary flavors, toast and almonds and a taut minerality. The aftertaste is taut, dry, seamless, complex.
Offers plenty of fruit andmdash; including raspberry and black currant, with hints of orange - but also notes of ginger, sweet baking spices and toast. This is complex and beautifully balanced, with a long, fresh and expansive aftertaste. Drink now through 2013.
The delicacy of this wine is apparent right from the pale rose color. The scent and flavor is the essence of floral fraises des bois, fresh, clean and lasting. Rather than direct fruit, the wine offers elegance. As appropriate for a rose, itandrsquo;s the most tender and romantic of Krugandrsquo;s Champagnes.
Krug Rosandeacute; has more characteristics of a delicately nuanced, complex Burgundy than most Champagnes. The bright raspberry essence of pinot noir fruit has the subtlety of great Burgundy, but as a Champagne that fruit flavor remains ethereal, while the depth and richness is created by the texture.
Krug maintains this astonishing blend by selecting 40 to 50 lots from six to ten vintages in its stock. Part of the complexity comes from the contrast of youthful fruit and age; part from the layering of flavors. Then there's its monumental scale. A voluptuous, massive, balanced wine.
Pale salmon in color, with delicate red pinot noir fruit character of floral blossoms and red berries. Complex flavors develop in the mouth and expand into the finish, where bitter almond, smoke, and elaborately nuanced red fruit flavors linger. Very long andmdash; the flavor impression lasts several minutes. Again, more a great wine than a Champagne.
Beautiful coppery pink. This starts out as a delicate, vinous rosé, then builds in structure, power and length. The texture is supple; the scents of roses and rosemary contrast ethereal with earthier tones. Held tight for now, there’s a substantial wine waiting to emerge with bottle age.
