    Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 163: the Art of Blending

    The Grande Cuvée is the quintessence of the Krug house. Each new edition is a new feat of virtuosity, a search for high precision. Dozens or even a hundred wines, in several vintages, are selected to achieve a real exploit and one of the most mythical vintages of Champagne.

    Edition 163 is a blend of 183 wines from 12 different years from 1990 to 2007 and produced from the 3 emblematic grape varieties of the Champagne region (Pinot Noir 37%, Chardonnay 32% and Pinot Meunier 31%). More than 20 years have been necessary to elaborate Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 163 with a cellar ageing of 5 years. The result lives up to the ambition of its creator, namely a champagne of intense richness and rare elegance. Sublime.

    Parker : 94 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    A complex bouquet of iodine, mandarin, warm biscuits, dried flowers, citrus oil and anise introduces the NV Grande Cuvée 163ème Édition, a wine that's built around the 2007 vintage and is beginning to display some very attractive evolution. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a ripe but racy spine of acidity, chalky structure and a long, penetrating finish.
