"Krug Grande Cuvée is the archetype of Krug’s philosophy of craftsmanship and savoir faire: a blend of more than 120 wines from ten or more different years. Its exceptional finesse is the result of a stay of at least another six years in the cellars. Over twenty years are needed to craft each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée: the first prestige cuvee re-created each year, beyond the very notion of vintage. As you taste it, notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied fruits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey. You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvée can age beautifully." —winemaker
"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." —Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator

"A very complex nose here with ripe, deep lemon and grapefruit aromas on offer plus some restrained chalky elements, biscuit, some roasting herbs, hints of pepper, then a little tobacco too. Very complex and full of fresh characters. The palate has a wealth of different fruit flavors like lemon, peach, nectarine, and plums. The finesse in terms of structure, detail and precision is staggering; sherbet-like elegance with immense concentration and power. A great Grande Cuvée. Incredibly satisfying." —JamesSuckling.com

"Pale bronze. Knockout nose combines smoke, maple syrup, fennel, chlorophyll, ginger, nutmeg and orange oil, all buttressed by a pungent, gamey, brothy element. Wonderfully ripe, smooth and harmonious, with the wine's sheer thickness and sweetness of fruit perfectly balanced by rather powerful but integrated acids. Compelling yeast autolysis character gives this multi-vintage blend great complexity. Remarkably slow-building, palate-staining finish. Ultimately comes across as sweeter than the comparatively forbidding Clos du Mesnil but you can't get either one of these remarkable wines off your palate." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
