Buy Krug Champagne Brut Grand Cuvee
An enchanting bouquet. Full round aromas. A flavor of roasted hazelnuts whos depth is drawn out in the mouth ending in a flowery fresh note.

Wine Spectator 97 points - The NV Grande Cuvee is absolutely stellar. This is one of the very best Grande Cuvees I can remember tasting. The flavors are bright, focused and beautifully delineated throughout, all of which make me think the wine will age well for many, many years. Lemon peel, white flowers, crisp pears, smoke and crushed rocks race across the palate in a vibrant, tense Champagne that epitomizes finesse. This release is based on the 2005 vintage and was disgorged in winter 2012/2013. The blend is: 44% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay and 19% Meunier. Krug ID: 113001.  (Sep 25 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 94 points - This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur and toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028. From France.—A.N.

Wine Advocate 93 points - This multivintage blend nails the essence of Krug, intense richness of fruit and flavor without weight. Meaty mushroom and soy aromas are balanced by rich red fruits, citrus, toast and mineral notes. Long finish. Score: 94. —Joe Czerwinski, December 01, 2005.
Oddly, the most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvee, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth. Score: 93. —Robert Parker, December 2005.

Food pairing
Accompanies food well as long as not too acid or sweet, and all traditional and exotic dishes.

Producer
Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have cultivated the markedly individual character of their exceptional champagne, showing that same single-mindedness and sense of purpose with which the founder, Johann-Joseph Krug, set out alone in pursuit of his objective of creating a champagne with a taste all its own.
