When Champagne enthusiasts think of Champagne, Krug is nearly always the first thought that comes to mind. The producer is one of the most iconic Champagne houses having been one of the creators of the non-vintage house blend that defines the region to this day. The House of Krug dates back many generations to 1843. Today, the winemaking rests in the remarkably talented hands of cellarmaster Julie Cavil, who took over the reigns after working for 13 years under her predecessor, the legendary Eric Lebel.

The Krug Grande Cuvée 171st Edition is a blend of 131 wines from 12 different years and consisting of 45% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay, and 18% Meunier. The youngest dates from 2015 and the oldest from 2000. The reserve wines from Krug's vast library make up 42% of the final blend, giving this edition a rare fullness and roundness. Resting for around seven years in the House cellars gives it its particular expression and elegance. Each glass contains the result of more than 20 years of in-depth expertise.

James Suckling: Rated 99 Points
"The tightness and tension of this is impressive considering the youngest wine from this is 2015 (hot and dry year) with some wines going back to 2000. Ginger and orange zest. Some creme brulee. It's medium-bodied with apple pie crust and floral character. It's salty and zesty yet at the same time complex and gorgeous. Chamomile and other floral teas highlight everything. Turns rich and flavorful at the finish. Terrific release. Really takes off at the end. Drink or hold"

Wine Spectator: Rated 96 Points
"A vivid Champagne with chiseled acidity and a fine vivacious mousse creating a buoyant frame for layered flavors of crushed black raspberry grilled nuts pink grapefruit sorbet and coffee liqueur plus fragrant accents of ground ginger and anise graphite and lime blossoms. Long and expressive on the finish crackling with a lingering fleur de sel note. Pinot Noir Chardonnay and Meunier. Disgorged winter 2021. Drink now through 2033."

Krug Grand Cuvee 171st Edition Champagne Brut NV offers the perfect balance of complexity and elegance, with a bouquet of ripe fruits and honey that carries through on the palate. The long finish features a delightful creaminess and a hint of minerality.
