Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier/Chardonnay Blend * 75cl * 12% ABV * Champagne, France
"What God gives his angels, but only when they have been very good."
Normally super-premium Champagnes rely on their fruit coming from a single exceptional vintage to distinguish themselves from other blends. This is certainly not the Krug way: there are no fewer than 47 wines in the current blend, coming from 10 vintages and 25 different villages. These individual wines are all fermented in separate small oak casks, allowing an incredible complexity of flavour to develop which is further added to by 6 years of bottle aging prior to release.
