Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Krug Grande Cuvee Brut (169th Edition)

A light golden color and fine, vivacious bubbles, holding a promise of pleasure. Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe, dried and citrus fruits, as well as marzipan and gingerbread. Grilled notes and flavors of almond paste, quince, lemon, limoncello and dried fruit.

Krug Grande Cuvée 169th edition lends itself to a wealth of culinary combinations, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, from an aged parmesan to turbot a la truffe.

It can be enjoyed as an aperitif with Jabugo ham and mature comte or served to accompany oysters, grilled shrimps, Indian or Moroccan food, as well as desserts such as carrot cake, tarte tatin and cheesecake.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Nov 15, 2021 - Rated 96:
A vivid Champagne, with a chiseled frame of acidity and a chalky underpinning cloaked in a fine mousse that caresses the palate with its gossamer-like texture. Lovely aromas of coffee liqueur, anise and verbena accent the layered flavors of tangerine, Macadamia nut, brioche and ripe plum, a profile that expands on the long, mouthwatering finish. There's power and expressive character to this, with a delicacy to its fine integration and length. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged winter 2019 to 2020. Drink now through 2030. — AN

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 12/31/2021 - Rated 95:
Pinot richness dominates this Champagne. It gives the dense texture as well as the ripe white fruits that show signs of toastiness as they mature. This full-bodied Champagne is ready to drink. ROGER VOSS

James Suckling Review - Published January 5, 2022 - Rated 97:
This is a layered Champagne with very fine tannins and super beautiful texture and length. Full-bodied with intensity and length. Powerful, austere and tight. Really long and made for the cellar. Vivid. Drink or hold.
