Krug Rosé Is Unique
Unexpected and daring.
- Krug Rosé is everywhere we don’t expect it to be, in terms of texture, colour and taste. A completely reinvented Rosé Universe.
- Krug Rosé is decidedly the most non-conformist of Krug Champagnes. Surprising and extraordinary, Krug Rosé is a controversy that is positively…delicious.
- It is the first prestige cuvee Rosé to be re-created each year, beyond the very notion of vintage.
- Together with Krug’s other cuvees, it has made Krug the world’s best-rated Champagne for years.
- Like all Krug Champagnes, it can age beautifully. The ID code, a six digit number located on the upper left hand side of the back label, can be used as a reference to collect bottles and enjoy them later
Krug Rosé In Essence
Krug Rosé shows a broad and extensive aromatic palette, unusual for a Rosé Champagne. Krug Rosé reveals a unique colour, silky texture and fullness, a blend of:
- a rich selection of wines from three grape varieties and several different vintages,
- a very expressive skin-fermented Pinot Noir wine, which provides unparalleled tone and spiciness.
Krug Rosé reaches its point of beautiful freshness and refined elegance after five years resting in the cellars.
- Unexpected subtleness of its pale pink colour, promise of elegance and refinement.
- Aromas of rose hips, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper & pink grapefruit.
- Delicate flavours of honey, citrus & dried fruit with long ending, enhanced by its subtle bubbles.
Joseph Krug was born in 1800 in the German town of Mainz, part of France’s Napoleonic empire at the time. Growing up at the heart of the Moselle, he was exposed early on to winegrowing as fragmented as the Champagne region he would one day call home. He became a talented, purposeful young man and spoke three languages.
Setting off at 24 as a trader and commercial traveler, he finally arrived in Paris in 1834. It was an exciting time where he lived in a creative milieu peopled by artists. Dreaming of making his mark in the world of Champagne, Joseph leaped at an opportunity that would eventually lead him to greatness: Joseph Krug was employed by Jacquesson, the leading Champagne House of the time. He quickly became a partner, travelled widely, mixed with the influential, but was far from satisfied.For him, the essence of Champagne was pleasure, yet variables in the weather could make quality waver dramatically from one year to the next. Joseph dreamed of another way beyond the constraints that compromised Champagne quality.At the age of 42, a time when most in his position would be close to retiring, he left the security of a comfortable career to risk it all. It was not an easy decision to take, especially considering he had married into the Jacquesson dynasty. But he was ready to put his vision to the test.
