Krug Brut Rosé 26ème 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.
Krug Rosé 26ème Édition is born from a selection of 28 wines from 7 different years, the youngest from 2014, and the oldest from 2005. It was completed with 11% traditionally macerated Pinot Noir of the year blended from plots in Aÿ and Taissy, to add a unique spiciness, colour and structure. A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives
The final composition of this Édition of Krug Rosé is 44% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 26% Meunier.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by some 33% reserve wines from six other vintages, Krug's new NV Brut Rosé 26ème Édition is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of tart red berries and plums mingled with notions of warm biscuits, dried fruits, flowers and orange zest. Medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, with terrific concentration, racy acids and a long, penetrating finish, it's an intensely flavored, electric wine that stands out as a particularly good recent release from this storied house."
Decanter - "An exotic, bright and freshly crushed raspberry nose, which persists. An exhilarating and fine wine. A fruit lolly note, but refined and smokily luxurious too."
Wine Spectator - "Like an orchard on a warm day, this leads with enticing floral and ripe fruit aromas. On the satiny palate, flavors of baked nectarine, white cherry and raspberry are pure and juicy, layered with rich notes of chopped macadamia nut and brioche, pickled ginger and candied blood orange peel, lime blossoms and chamomile. Finely tuned and harmonious, this is a mouthwatering version, with the flavor range expanding through to the long, lasting finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Drink now through 2027."
