Krug Rosé 26ème Édition
The rosé champagne for bold gastronomic experiences.
Krug Rosé is inspired by the dream of the fifth generation of the Krug family to conceive a rosé Champagne that did not yet exist, one that could be re-created each year. Every Édition of Krug Rosé perpetuates this legacy.
Krug Rosé is surprising, as it replaces a good red wine at the table with brio. This Champagne is a delicate blend of wines of the year with wines from selected plots of the House’s vast reserve library, completed with traditionally macerated Pinot Noir to add structure and spice. A rest of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Rosé its refined elegance and character
KRUG ROSÉ IS UNIQUE
Krug Rosé expresses a broad palette of plots’ wines with fruit characters of all types, and spicy notes with astonishing breadth and depth.
A perfect tango with savoury dishes, Krug Rosé replaces a good red wine at the table with brio.
The Édition number corresponds to the number of times in the House of Krug the fifth generation’s dream has been re-created. It also serves as a reference for collectors, to enjoy it later.
As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug Rosé 26ème Édition will continue to gain with the passage of time
The full story of every Édition is revealed online via its Krug iD, the six digits on the back label
At first sight, its subtle pale pink colour holds a promise of elegance.
On the nose, aromas of rose hips, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper and pink grapefruit.
On the palate, delicate flavours of honey, citrus and dried fruit with a long finish, enhanced by its fine bubbles complete the experience
Unexpectedly, Krug Rosé 26ème Édition best accompanies very savoury dishes.
