It was back in 1843 when Joseph Krug decided to give his name to a Maison de Champagne that would become an icon of this region and that would make the history of the most famous bubbles in the world by introducing the concept of cuvée at the expense of vintage, wanting to offer the best possible champagne every year as the fruit of the skills and mastery of the chef de cave without reflecting the climatic trend of a specific vintage.
So it all begins with one of the champagnes that still today is the most representative of the Maison. The Krug Grand Cuvée was created starting in 1845 and every year it manages to revive the magic of a single blend, increasing the level of difficulty more and more as the number of wines at the base of the cuvée itself increases.
Of course, over the years Krug has grown as a champagne producer and has also supported the various trends that have followed, introducing in its offer the concept of the vintage as well as the productions linked to individual crus, still the flagship of the Maison of Reims.
However, the basic philosophy created by Joseph Krug at the time has not changed: harvesting each single plot individually so to create a base wine with its own distinctive personality, allowing the unique characteristics of that single wine to contribute to the perfect blend of yesterday, today or tomorrow, without haste and above all without one wine being favored over another.
Today there are four hundred wines that each year give life to a real sensorial laboratory to create Krug champagnes, a unique excellence in the world of Champagne and wine in general, emblem of how a Maison, which today boasts some of the most famous labels in the world (Clos du Mesnil and Clos d’Ambonnay, just to give a few examples), is able to pay homage to its identity by following the path marked in its time by Joseph Krug, and never left for six generations.
