A world-famous Champagne house representing some of the very best quality champagne, Krug never fails to impress and satisfy its drinkers. Unlike other champagne houses, Krug’s non-vintage Grand Cuvée is regarded as the house's top production. The cuvee is re-created every year, blended from meticulously selected individual wines from more than 10 different years.
The most recent release is their 168th Edition which was composed around the 2012 harvest - a beautiful year with a low yield due to the frost, rain, storms and hale during winter and spring but was followed by the driest ripening season since 1974 - and was crafted to become what the house describes as "the most generous expression of Champagne". It is a blend of 198 wines from 11 different years, with the youngest from 2012 and the oldest dating back to 1996.
Scored 97pts by Wine Spectator which said this 168th edition was "hard to stop sipping" and 19 out of 20 points by Jancis Robinson who commented that this is "magnificently precise", we are pleased to offer this at only HK$1,180 per bottle. Definitely one not to miss! -
Krug Grand Cuvée 168th Edition
HK$1,180 per bottle
19 out of 20 points Jancis Robinson
Notably intense aroma with crème pâtissière dominant. Masses of extract and remarkable acidity underpinned by great depth of flavour and beautiful balance on the finish. I think this is going to be a really great, glamorous Grande Cuvée that will continue to develop in bottle for many years to come. I suspect it will be even more enjoyable from the end of 2020. The length on the palate is remarkable. This is magnificently precise, a great tribute to the work of the old cellarmaster Eric Lebel, who is still in the background, and a wonderful welcome to his successor Julie Cavil, who has been learning from him since 2006.

"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."
