- Presentation of the winery
Krug house was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, in Reims. Joseph Krug's dream was to create a high quality champagne, no subject to weather constraints. He decided to create a wine collection, which became his mixing palette and allowed him to ensure, year after year, the production of the best Champagne, called Grande Cuvée. He transmitted his knowledge and knowhow to his heirs, who keep producing champagne using his receiped and principles.
Krug House became and still is the unique House of Champagne producing prestige champagnes every year. Krug Champagnes are sold only when the have become mature. Krug House is THE prestige champagne reference.
Krug house now belongs to LVMH Group, but Olivier Krug, from the 6th generation, still manages the house and production according to Krugs principles and processes.
Champagne of the Millennium, assembled with grapes from many plots (Black Pinot, Chardonnay and Meunier for respectively 42, 43 and 15% of its composition), Krug 2000 has a beautiful golden color, and a fresh and intense taste, leading to a long and lasting finish.
