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
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.
Rémi Krug insists that his Grande Cuvée be called “multi” rather than “nonvintage” because he believes that the latter term is too disparaging for his superb Champagne. Krug’s Grande Cuvée is very dry and full bodied, with great concentration and a long, honeyed finish. it can age indefinitely. The wine connoisseur’s Champagne.
A mature, subtly flavored brut that invites you in with mellow aromas and flavors, coats the mouth with a rich effervescence and keeps your interest through the tangy aftertaste. Drink now through 2000.
Nonvintage Champagne National Champion. Mild straw. Medium full body. Medium acid and fruit. Nuts, bread, biscuits. Impressively mature, with moderate depth and richness. Still retaining some tightness of youth, however, with crisp acids enlivening fruit nicely.
Deeply scented with butter, spice and citrus. The rich, full, complex palate of buttery and spicy citrus is beautifully balanced, complex, rich and long — super, a great Grand Cuvée.
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.
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.
