Krug Vintage Champagne
A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year enhanced by a lengthy stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the music of the year, captured by Krug.
For 2008, the selected wines were those best exhibiting the structure and complexity of the year. Pinot Noir plots’ wines (53%) constitute over half of the blend and come primarily from plots in the Montagne de Reims Sud including Aÿ, Mareuil, Bouzy and Ambonnay. Meunier plots’ wines (25%) bring tension and citrus, while aromatic Chardonnay plots’ wines (22%) imbue the blend with fruit. The extraordinary profile of Krug 2008 comes after 12 years in the cellars, gaining in expression, harmony and finesse.
