Krug Grande Cuvée Brut NV

Champagne, FranceKrug Champagne is many things, but since 1843 the Grande Cuvée has been the storyteller for this remarkable champagne house. According to its ID number, this bottle spent about seven years in Krug's cellars, finally going under cork in 2017. The 166ème Édition is a blend of 140 wines from 13 different years including 2010, the base year, and back to 1996. Reserve wines make up 42% of the final mix of 45% pinot noir, 39% chardonnay and 16% pinot meunier. Its deep golden colour and incredible small persistent bubbles preview rich aromas of citrus, flowers, dried fruits, and marzipan, and it is only the start. The palate is equally intense with hints of hazelnuts, almond brioche, citrus fruits, spice, nougat, sugarcoated jelly candy, brioche, and honey. You can serve this with anything, but If you want to stun your guests, serve it alongside chunks of old Reggiano Parmigiano.Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 285.99 BCLS AB 289.99 private wine shops ON 290.00 LCBO - Vintages QC 313.00 SAQ NB 280.00 NBLiquour NS 295.00 NSLC Producer: Champagne KrugDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
