KRUG Black Vintage 1996 | Cellared at Krug Until 2016 | ID407001

This edition of Krug Vintage 1996 is part of the Black Vintage collection, a rare limited edition issued by the Maison Krug in the year 2020.

The Champagne Krug Vintage represents the bidimensional expression of Krug: three grapes coming from a single vintage of rare excellence. Not a better or worse Krug, but a different one, balanced and complete, similar to its predecessors. This Champagne is the perfect and irrevocable interpretation that Krug gives of an excellent and unrepeatable vintage that has also revealed a unique personality and will then be made concrete through the marketing of a rare and unique product. The result is a Champagne capable of harmonizing the specific character of a single vintage with the intense style inspired by the Maison Krug.

Krug Vintage 1996 - Cellared at Krug Until 2016 - after an aging period of at least 20 years in the Krug cellars, was disgorged in the fall 2007 and then continued a further aging period in the bottle for another 10 years. The 1996 vintage had already unmistakable characteristics, but it was necessary to wait until the promises had been confirmed, since all decisions at the Maison were taken only after the tasting had been completed. Initially, the wines were so extraordinarily fresh as to test the art of their composition, but soon it became clear that, over the course of time, the right blend would tell one of the most compelling stories. Today, after more than twenty years, Krug Vintage 1996 still has the freshness of youth and, while sometimes struggling to retain its impetuosity, masterfully summarises roundness and explosions of liveliness. Over the years it will not fail to reveal fascinating and always new facets.

Champagne Krug

The Krug Maison interprets the extraordinary adventure of Joseph Krug, a determined man, without compromises, who understood that Champagne essence is the delight itself. He wanted to offer his Clients the best of the Champagne delight, every year, regardless of the climate change. Joseph Krug founded the first and unique Maison able to offer a high quality Champagne. In 1843, when his son was still too young to manage the Maison de Champagne, Joseph Krug wrote down his principles and passed them on to the Maison in a cherry-red leaflet. That leaflet is not only of historic importance for the Maison, but also a a man's last will embracing his family and the Champagne region as well. The Maison Krug's philosophy is about grapes selection from single parcels, expressing their own features and soil characteristics; no hierarchy is needed and all vines are taken into consideration, sometimes even parcels as small as a garden. The Maison is looking for stron characters and a contrast between grapes coming from different lots. Krug is the only Maison de Champagne welcoming and representing all vines in excellent wines.
