Tom's Luxury Picks - Krug
Olivier Krug is proud of his family’s history and contribution to champagne’s prestige, and founder Joseph Krug’s words of wisdom from 1848 set out the principles that are still followed today – emphasising the importance of assemblage for “Cuvée 1”, to be made to the same exacting standards every year. Craftsmanship, artistry, heritage and unrivalled excellence are all horribly overused terms in the lexicon of top champagne brands, but, to give a sense of perspective, where most non-vintage champagnes are a composite of three or four years (a base with gaps filled by reserve wines), Krug can utilise nearly 200 still wines from a 15-year spectrum.
