Johan-Josef Krug established the firm in 1843 after working for 9 years for Jacquesson. Their methods are traditional. wines are fermented in casks, there is no filtration, and the wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation ( the process where the sharp malic acid is converted into softer lactic acid and carbonic gas. The sharpness of the malic acid is softened with aging ).All Krug wines achieve unsurpassable depth and complexity.
As you taste it, notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied fruits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey.
You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully.
