Vintage 2006  - Champagne Krug

Vintage 2006 (EN)

The Krug Champagne House considers that each Vintage expresses the unique character of a particular year. A Krug Millésime brings together the most expressive wines of the same year, enhanced by aging for more than ten years in the cellar.

Each Krug Millésime is different: it is the Music of the Year, transposed into the Krug universe. The House has given the nickname “Capricious Gourmandise” to Krug 2006, a gourmet story full of roundness and elegance.

Terroirs & Grape Varieties

The blending of a new vintage of Krug reflects the desire to tell the story of the year.

2006 was considered a hot and unpredictable year in Champagne, with capricious weather alternating between very dry periods and heavy rainfall (the equivalent of two months' rainfall in just two weeks in August).

The sun shone during the harvest. The grapes therefore developed a fine balance, similar to that of 2002 and 1989.

About this house

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 annual climatic variations.

With his traditional approach to Champagne-making, Joseph Krug decided to go beyond the very notion of vintage to create the most generous expression of Champagne every year. He thus founded a House where all Champagnes would be of equal distinction.

Chef's word

Chef Arnaud Lallement testifies:

"This Grande Cuvée tells me thestory of Champagne over the last hundred and fifty years. It's a meal wine that triumphs from aperitif to dessert. As it opens, its aromas evolve. The freshness and liveliness 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 duck with ponzu (citrus and soy reduction)."
