Krug Brut Rosé 24ème Edition Champagne with Gift Box
Krug Rose is a relatively recent addition to the Krug range of Champagnes, having been introduced first in 1983. While produced in a manner similar to other Krug Champagnes and stylistically consistent, it nevertheless presents a uniquely exotic and intriguing set of aromas and flavors. It's color is a pale salmon, suggesting the barest hint of pink. It is quite dry and appealing with a wide array of cuisines. Krug Rosé is a unique blend that spans four to six different vintages, three grape varieties, and encompasses all the complexities of the Krug style. It is aged for a minimum of six years before release. Krug Rosé is produced only occasionally and in strictly limited quantities.

James Suckling - "A very vinous rosé with sliced strawberry and peach aromas and flavors with a steely undertone. Hints of cream and biscuit. It’s medium-bodied, tight, linear and precise with pinpointed structure that goes straight to the center palate and carries on through the long finish. Very fine tannins provide drive and length."
Wine Enthusiast - "The balance between maturity and fruit in this Champagne is exemplary. It gives both ripeness to the red-currant fruits and a fine nutty richness that meld together seamlessly. This is a beautiful wine, perfectly ready to drink but also sure to age well in bottle. Cellar Selection"
Wine & Spirits - "Edition 24 of Krug Rosé is based on the 2012 vintage, and the exceptional harvest shows in the delicacy and evenness of the wine. This takes time to show its complexity, but the depths are there in the fragrance of roses and the subtle thorn of acidity, in the woodland mushroom savor, the savory strawberry pastry and the notes of raspberry ganache. When Krug Rosé hits, it is one of the most beautiful wines you’ll find in Champagne. This edition wraps the flavors of a grand cru Burgundy into a delicate essence, with freshness and energy to spare. Luxurious, buzzing with floral notes of fraises des bois and tannins that structure and frame the flavors while remaining virtually imperceptible, this offers up its pleasures for days and will continue to thrive for years in the bottle."
Wine Spectator - "A richly fragrant rosé Champagne, leading with grilled nut and ground coffee notes, segueing into exotic saffron and curry spice aromas that season the palate's panoply of poached apricot, toasted brioche, spun honey and crème de cassis flavors. Shows a fine, satiny mousse, with a bright spine of acidity that creates a long, mouthwatering frame for the expanding profile. Disgorged spring 2018. Drink now through 2030. "
