The attack reveals an aromatic intensity with a remarkable fullness and the smooth, sweet flavours of white flowers, red fruits, caramel, and Tarte Tatin. The full, round, and refined texture in the initial attack, which is characteristic of the Louis Roederer Champagne House, is complemented by a winey-though not full-bodied-structure and a remarkable freshness, giving an impression of great finesse and strengthening the wine’s precision.

Colour: Tinted with golden glints that reflect the wine’s maturity and Bollinger vinification techniques.
Nose: A precise and fruity nose with a slight scent of sea-air. Aromas of cherry and lemon mingle with quince and bergamot. Then notes of hazelnut and almond, peach and mirabelle plum complete this wine’s range of aromas.
Composed around the 2012 harvest, Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition is an expressive and elegant blend of 198 reserve wines from 11 different years.
Henri Krug said, 'Krug Grand Cuvee is as a symphony, a composition where all the instruments play together, complimenting each other in total harmony'.
The composition of the cuvee is a stunning mosaic of flavours where the three champagne grapes, 20-25 growths and 6-10 different years, combine to give Grand Cuvee its complexity, elegance and consistency year after year, blend after blend.
The bouquet is wonderfully creamy, leading to a magical combination of weight and balance on the palate.
The long, lingering finish is both nutty and toasty, ending with a final flourish of freshness. Leave a comment0 Comments
The shape of the badge on the bottle dates back from Henry V and is one of the rare Pink Champagnes obtained by maceration which gives its remarkable flavour.
10 different crus originate from the most beautiful areas of Champagne; Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours sor Marne.
Maturation takes a minimum of four years and disgogement is carried out manually.
100% Pinot Noir, a salmony colour, frank and fresh on the nose with a large array of small red berries.
The fruit is dominant in the mouth with first impressions being very acidulous and frank and should be served at between 8-10 degrees and can accompany poultry, young cheeses and fruit desserts.
To produce Laurent-Perrier's luxury cuvee, Bernard de Nonancourt decided to concentrate on two of the mainstays of Champagne's know-how: the blending of different crus (wines from separate villages) and from different harvest years.
The epitome of Champagne blending, Grand Siecle calls on wines from the finest growths and the very best harvests; years which have been declared as vintages by Laurent-Perrier. Made to be given or shared with friends and family, it is a very seductive Champagne, totally enjoyable.
