Product Detail

At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year. A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the Music of the year, captured by Krug.

The 2006 Vintage from Krug is generous and full - a champagne in true Krug style, with an expressive nose and palate. A true show-stopper. Named ‘capricious indulgence’ by the maison, this prestige cuvée was born of an unpredictable year. The 2006 will go down in history as one of the maison’s greatest.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: At first sight, the beautiful light golden colour promises radiant freshness.

Aroma: On the nose begins with an expressive bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and Mirabelle.

Taste: On the palate, a very balanced Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey gives way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant finish.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Krug 2004 promises a delectable pairing with sea urchin, salmon tartar or caviar. It also pairs very well with artichoke and alightly spiced creamy mayonnaise sauce, delicate white fish in lemon sauce and olive oil or sole meunière as well as Thai cuisine with ginger and lemongrass. Fresh goat’s cheese and candied citrus underline the Champagne’s beautiful freshness, while a lemon meringue tart makes for a perfectly paired dessert.
