In 1848 Joseph Krug wrote in his dark cherry personal notebook, “a good Champagne House should only create two Champagnes of the same quality”. Champagne Number 1, Krug Grande Cuvée, is his dream, the most generous expression of Champagne and the House’s most original creation. Champagne Number 2, Krug Vintage, is the expression of the circumstances of a particular year, captured by Krug.
The Creations of 2008 were intentionally kept in their cellars, waiting for this very special moment. Krug 2008 is the story of the year, captured by Krug and Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition is the most generous expression of Champagne, composed around the harvest of 2008.
