Krug 1979 75cl
A bottle of Krug 1979 vintage Champagne. This vintage is a blend of 36% Pinot Noir, 28% Pinot Meunier and 36% Chardonnay.
Krug Champagne is a Champagne house founded by Joseph Krug in 1853. It is based principally in Reims, the main city in France’s Champagne region, and is one of the famous Champagne houses that formed part of the Grande Marques. Today, the house is majority owned by LVMH, but despite this, the Krug family is still actively involved in all the key decisions of the house.
'Nineteen seventy-nine is one of the all-time great vintages for Krug....pulses with remarkable energy and tension, with the Chardonnay coming through nicely in the wine’s overall brightness. Lemon oil, white flowers, almonds, crushed rocks and dried herbs are some of the signatures. Krug’s 1979 is testament to the towering stature of this iconic Champagne vintage. 98/100' Antonio Galloni, 2015
