Krug Grande Cuvee Bottled 1980s-1990s 75cl / 12%
An old bottling of Krug Grande Cuvée Champagne. The label suggests this was released in 1982 to 1996. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s to 1990s.
Grande Cuvée is blended from around 120 wines from multiple vintages, some as much as 15 years old. After bottling it remains in Krug's cellars for a further six years, resulting in a complex, 'vinous' Champagne. Wine critic Andrew Jefford noted that: 'of all the wine world's luxury wine brands, Krug is perhaps the most glittering'.
