Joseph Krug founded the house after a spell working at Jacquesson in 1842. The house is soley focussed on quality, ruthless selecton of vines and parcels of wines. All wines are fermented in small, old barriques, little to no malolactic is used and all go through a very slow second fermentation. The youngest wines undergo between five and seven years lees contact and can be made up of up to fifteen different vintages. This is a prestige cuvee house of the highest quality.

Very elegant. This is one of the most complex wines from the Champagne region. The nose reveals an intriguing mosaic of aromas that includes lemongrass, freshly baked brioche, candied lime peel, white berries and a hint of fresh herbs. The palate is powerful and delivers a tightly coiled acidity that is entwined around plentiful fruit characters.
