Krug Rosé Rosé Pinot Noir Meunier Chardonnay NV
Aged in neutral barrels with 6 years on the lees, this gives it its incredibly nutty nose, and its oily character. Sweet peach flavor and a fine bead, coupled with the acids, firm, but not overpowering, make this an exceptional wine. Great, extended, finish with subtle fig notes.
Finally getting round to drinking this bottle to celebrate my daughters 1st birthday as it should require a special occasion to bring something like this out. Its been sitting in the sideboard for over 3.5 years and ther wait was worth it and can see what the fuss is all about. Beautifully deep golden amber in appearance, it just melts effortlessly in the mouth but packs a big vanilla, toast, brioche and a slight tropical hint. Its an expensive one but worth it.
Very tasty and elegantly crafted. 93 pts. -Wine Spectator Grand Tour 5/5/12
I bought 5 bottles of Krug's Grande Cuvée (at very interesting 'discount' prices) in 1998 and we drank the last bottle in February 2008. Every bottle was an experience. If well-stored in a cool cellar, this champagne retains its qualities for at least 10 years, even developping additional nuances and finesse with extended bottle age. Its poise, depth and acidity verge on perfection.
Possibly the best wine I've ever had. Too complex for me to even describe. God, I love Champagne.
I agree with all of you. To quote a wine reviewer I read somewhere, "It's like meursault with bubbles!" I love the heaviness and spiciness of this Champagne.
An excellent champagne, only topped by certain vintage editions.
External Reviews for Krug Rosé Rosé Pinot Noir Meunier Chardonnay
...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
A brilliantly made wine of great finesse and power. This is the blending art raised to its highest level.
Blassgoldene Farbe, weiche Mousse aus langsam aufsteigenden Bläschen, elegantes Aroma von Toast, gerösteten Nüssen und Trockenfrüchten, kräftig, große Finesse und Komplexität, mit zunehmender Reife entwickelt er Honigaromen.
Offers plenty of fruit 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.... Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Krug Rose 750ml
The richest Champagne style produced today. Barrel fermentation and plenty of Pinot Noir give this the power that lovers of full bodied Champagne crave!
