    An exceptional champagne from an iconic Champagne house

    The producer

    The Krug Champagne House was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, a visionary with a great passion for champagne making. The house comprises a unique library of over 150 reserve wines, some of which are over 15 years old.

    The vineyard

    With more than 250 different plots, including the prestigious Clos du Mesnil and the Clos d’Ambonnay, the Krug Champagne House owns reigns over the most exceptional vineyards in Champagne.

    The wine

    The House of Krug believes that each Krug Vintage expresses the unique character of a specific winemaking year. A Krug Vintage bottling comprises the most expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by aging for over ten years in the peaceful and tranquil cellar. Each Krug Vintage is different: it is a well orchestrated symphony reflecting the year of the vintage, transposed into the world of Krug.

    Krug 2008 is the elegant and intense story of a cool and balanced year, which the Krug tasting panel has nicknamed “Timeless Elegance”. The unexpected diversity of the grape varieties is illustrated by great complexity, and we noted a very wide spectrum of flavors and aromas during the harvests. For the final blend, the Cellar Master selected wines that reflected all the complexity of 2008, in a remarkably structured composition imbued with the elegance of that year. After spending 12 years in the cellars, Krug 2008 has become yet more expressive, offering a remarkable profile that is both precise and harmonious.

    Krug Vintage 2008: Characteristics and tasting tips

    The tasting

    At first sight, Krug 2008 has a bright, intense golden color.

    It is expressive, rich and generous on the nose, with burnished aromas of honey, licorice, menthol, orange and grapefruit peel.

    Lively, intense and harmonious with a wonderful tension on the palate, notes of quince, candied fruit and citrus, yellow kiwi, star fruit, honey, apple tart, petit beurre biscuits, orange peel, peony and fennel, as well as floral and mentholated touches that stand out upon tasting. The Krug 2008 vintage offers a pleasant length on the palate, while remaining precise and remarkably structured.
