Champagne Krug
Rosé 26ème Édition

Krug Rosé is inspired by the dream of the fifth generation of the Krug family to conceive a Rosé Champagne that did not yet exist, one that could be re-created each year. Every Édition of Krug Rosé perpetuates this legacy.

The wide palette of elegant notes of the 26ème Édition owes its variety to a selection of 28 wines from 7 different vintages, the youngest of which dates back to 2014 and the oldest to 2005. An additional 11% Pinot Noir of the vintage, traditionally macerated, comes from the blending of plots in Aÿ and Taissy, bringing spicy notes, colour and structure. The resting period of about seven years in the Krug cellars gives Krug Rosé 26ème Édition a unique expression and elegance. The Krug Rosé 26ème Édition is based on the 2014 vintage, an unpredictable year in which warm dry periods and cool rainy ones alternated. The wines developed in good conditions, guaranteeing a generous harvest of high quality. The contrasting weather conditions preserved freshness and resulted in great heterogeneity within the region, underlining the importance of the Maison's approach, which considers each plot as its own. Each year, to recreate the fifth generation of Maison Krug's idea of composing an unexpected, bold and elegant Champagne Rosé, the Maison begins by selecting wines from the year and previous vintages that together can release all possible expressions of fruit. This composition then embraces a traditionally macerated Pinot Noir (vinified in red), which brings spicy notes, colour and structure.

The Krug Rosé 26ème Édition is thus the result of combining the year's terroir wines with vin de réserve from six other vintages. Reserve Chardonnay wines from the 2006 harvest offer roundness and unctuousness to this Krug Rosé Édition, while the red Pinot Noir of the year blended with wines from the Aÿ and Taissy plots complete the creation. A dream that is recreated for the 26th time.

The Krug Rosé 26ème Édition presents itself with an incredibly delicate pink colour, a promise of elegance. The nose opens up aromas of dog rose, cured ham, blackberry, redcurrant, peony, pepper and pink grapefruit. The palate offers delicate notes of honey, citrus and dried fruit with a lingering finish, enlivened by a very fine bubble.

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.
