A stay of at least seven years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Rosé 23ème Édition its unique expression and elegance.
"Krug Rosé has got darker over the years, a statement of intent perhaps, its significant 13% of macerated Pinot Noir sourced from a special plot in Ay. Despite this Chardonnay is the key shareholder in the blend, its 45% outweighing near equal measures of the two Pinots. Gravitas translates on the palate to cherry fruit and spice, herbs and hints of quince and rosemary; unashamedly complex for sure, gastronomically promising without a doubt. For all the power and glory, the wine is fresh, energetic and forward, its unrivalled pedigree immediately obvious for all to behold. Drinking Window 2019 - 2028"
