- Victim of his success
Krug Rosé was born from the dream of the fifth generation of the Krug family to create a unique Rosé Champagne that can be recreated every year.
This Rosé 25th Edition is surprising because it can easily play the role of a good red wine served at the table. An aging of about six years in the cellars of the House of Krug gives this Champagne Krug Rosé its refined elegance.

The House was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, a non-conformist visionary with an uncompromising philosophy. His dream was to create the best possible Champagne every year, regardless of the annual climatic variations.
With a traditional approach to Champagne making, Joseph Krug decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the most generous expression of Champagne each year. He thus founded a House where all Champagnes would be of the same level of distinction
Chef Arnaud Lallement testifies
"This Grande Cuvée tells me the history of Champagne for one hundred and fifty years. It is a meal wine that triumphs from the aperitif to the dessert. As it opens, its aromas evolve. The freshness and vivacity of the beginning give way to notes of candied citrus, toasted, toasted nuances, which will enjoy the company of a capon stuffed with foie gras and mushrooms or that of a duck with ponzu (citrus and soy reduction)."
