Rice, the "Single Ingredient" of Champagne Krug in 2022

One plot, one bottle, one raw material: at the basis of Krug technology, individuality is an art that treats each grape variety and each wine from this terroir as a unique raw material. Every year for the past 7 years, after artichokes, onions or eggs, the House of Krug celebrates this idea with a single ingredient: a program that pays tribute to unique ingredients whose history is linked to a specific region and cooking technique, revealed by the creativity of Chef Ambassadors from around the world.
