Tasting notes for the Champagne Krug "Grande Cuvée" Édition 169 (Gift Box)

  • EYE: The robe is shiny and gold, punctuated with amber reflections. Fine and persistent effervescence forms a delicate cord in the glass.
  • NOSE: This champagne reveals a complex and rich aromatic palette. Notes of ripe fruits such as pear and peach harmoniously mingle with accents of roasted hazelnuts and freshly baked brioche. Hints of honey and white flowers bring a subtle floral dimension to the table.
  • MOUTH: This Edition 169 has a creamy texture and delicate effervescence. The attack is lively and fresh, evolving towards a remarkable fullness in the mouth. Flavors of dried fruits, candied citrus, and toasted bread unfold elegantly, supported by balanced acidity and a persistent finish.

In short: Krug's Grande Cuvée Édition 169 will offer you a refined sensory experience. Visually, its golden robe is appealing, while its complex aromatic bouquet delights the nose. On the palate, its creamy texture and rich flavors provide a memorable tasting experience. This champagne can be stored for 5 to 10 years to allow its aromas to fully develop. It pairs perfectly with a variety of dishes such as seafood, roasted poultry, aged cheeses, spicy Asian dishes, and fruit desserts.

The purest quality of Champagne


The Champagne House Krug is now a venerable old lady, born in 1843 in Reims. Its founder, Johann-Joseph Krug (a German citizen from Mainz, which used to be controlled by France), spent 8 years working for the Maison Jacquesson before going his own way. Thanks to his partner Hippolyte de Vivès, and his will to create the best Champagne in the world (and the physical incarnation of pleasure), Joseph quickly succeeded in turning his new brand into an international powerhouse.

When he died in 1866, his son Paul rose up to the task of managing the family business, since he had been trained by Joseph. Like father like son, Paul Krug also aimed to unlock the hidden potential of all his wines and to reinforce the character of each parcel of his vineyard. His hard work truly paid off during the 1880's, when the popularity of the Champagne House Krug skyrocketed.

Since then, many members of the Krug family have helped the estate grow: Joseph Krug II, grandson of Johann-Joseph, in 1910; his son Paul Krug II, during the 1930's; Rémi and Henri Krug, in 1962. Finally, the Krug brand was bought in 1999 by the LVMH Group, which specializes in luxury goods. However, the estate remains in the family, with Olivier Krug (its proud sixth-generation representative) acting as the current director.
