Krug Champagne
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.
Champagne House Website: http://www.krug.com/ Although the Events section has not been updated since October 2003. Tsk Tsk.
Prices: Krug Grande Cuv�e Berry Brothers £85.00 Hailsham Cellars £45.99 (half) TheDrinkShop £89.45
Krug Rosé Hailsham Cellars £148.00
Krug Vintage 1990 Berry Brothers £127
