KRUG Vintage 2008 champagne with box

0 reviews

The year 2008 was one of Champagne’s coolest in 14 years, and also one of the region’s least sunny in almost half a century. A superb vintage, it was a classic northern climate, one that has not been seen much since. Rainfall was normal, the summer was dry, and temperatures were constant throughout the growing season. This absence of extremes resulted in slow and steady grape maturation. Under these circumstances, the fruit was intense, elegant and beautifully structured. Unexpected heterogeneity in the vines brought great complexity, with a very complete spectrum of flavours and aromas observed upon harvest. For the final blend, the House’s Cellar Master selected wines best exhibiting the flavours, aromas, and complexity of the year. It was brought to life in a composition marked by the beauty, complexity and elegant structure of 2008. For the final creation, the selected plots’ wines were those best exhibiting the outstanding character of 2008. Pinot Noir plots’ wines (53%) constitute over half of the blend and come primarily from emblematic plots in the Montagne de Reims Sud including Aÿ, Mareuil, Bouzy and Ambonnay. Meunier plots’ wines (25%) bring tension and citrus, while aromatic Chardonnay plots’ wines (22%) imbue the blend with fruit. The beautiful, precise and harmonious profile of Krug 2008 comes after 12 years in the cellars, gaining in expression, harmony and finesse.
