What and Where: It is possible to find more expensive bubbly, but there's no posher name. Krug has always had an old-money, Rolls Royce feel.
What does it taste like? Grande Cuvee, which Krug calls multivintage rather than non-vintage, is deep, rich, complex and dry.
Why does it taste so different? It is fermented in small oak casks (large vats are the champagne norm), it includes a high proportion of mature reserve wines, and it is aged for much longer than other non-vintages.
Who drinks it? Joseph Ettedgui, Jane Birkin, Terence Conran, Placido Domingo - and anybody else, given the chance.
