    Winemaker's Notes:

    Krug Rosé 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    For the last three years, Krug Rose has been consistently brilliant, back to the ethereal grace the wine once delivered under the masterful blending of Henri Krug. It captures pinot noir with the vinous reality of a grand cru Burgundy, elevating those flavors into a more delicate ecstasy of taste. The brisk freshness of the wine might bring you to a cool limestone cave and just-picked fraises des bois. The complexity of the reserve wine lifts the palate to a more celestial realm. Mood-altering pinot.

    Deep salmon pink; smooth, elegant nose; lush and mouthfilling but refined and elegant; seamless, complex, layered and masterful.

    The silky texture of this vivid rosé Champagne drapes the palate, offering an aromatic panoply of flavors, from pure raspberry and white peach fruit to ground cumin and anise, violet, graphite, spun honey and toasted almond. Delivers a long, mouthwatering finish. Disgorged January 2013. Drink now through 2025.

    The beauty of Krug's rosé is the sense of bottle age, of that extra richness. That means the wine is not just the sum of its delicious red berry fruits. It’s also the way the wine is rounded out, filled with secondary flavors, toast and almonds and a taut minerality. The aftertaste is taut, dry, seamless, complex.

    Bright orange-pink. An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes red berries, Asian spices and flowers, along with toasty lees, anise and vanilla. Deep, sappy and palate-staining, with intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors, velvety texture and a jolt of chalky minerals on the back half. The mineral quality lingers on a long, incisive finish of striking purity.

    The NV Brut Rose is awesome in the way it combines elegance, finesse and power. There is superb material in the density of fruit, along with perfumed aromatics and silky, chalky tannins that frame the long finish. It’s all here in this sublime, sensual wine, but readers should note that the same caveats apply as with the Grand Cuvee above.

    The Wine Advocate

    High in autolyzed yeast and showing the layered complexity of lengthy aging, this non-vintaged bottling is a classic expression of the Krug style. It is, in all truth, not as concerned with fruit as many, but its very firm balance, fine foamy mousse and its long, brisk flavors will not disappoint aficionados.
