To create this Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée, the Cellar Master looked to accentuate the year’s elegantly diverse aromatic expressions with different plots’ reserve wines from 11 other years. The careful attention given to the vines and Krug’s unique respect for the individual character of each plot enabled the breadth of expression of this Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.
In all, reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 45% of the final blend, bringing the breadth and roundness so essential to each Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.
The final composition of this bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée is 51% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay and 11% Meunier.
DEVIALET 'Gemini' Earbuds
DEVIALET strives to offer customers products with unprecedented quality, design, and purity of sound. To reach the ultimate sound quality, DEVIALET worked on several patents below that shape its sound rendering and listening experience.
Internal Delay Compensation (IDC®️) - Our patented algorithm perfectly compensates for the internal delay generated by a noise cancellation loop. The result: a significant gain in noise cancellation, especially at higher frequencies.
Pressure Balance Architecture (PBA®️) - Devialet invented an acoustic architecture of cascading decompression chambers that ensure ideal inner pressure at all times. Each chamber is coated with custom acoustic mesh that proactively stops external noise from entering the system, ensuring effective Active Noise Cancellation. The result is an intimate listening experience with unspoiled sound.
Ear Active Matching (EAM®️) - Devialet Gemini owes its superior sound quality to a proprietary Ear Active Matching algorithm. The algorithm instantly captures the listener's specific ear shape and automatically tailors the signal to the ear up to 10,000 times per second, ensuring a fully immersive and intimate listening experience.

"Exceptional freshness with aromas of flinty white stones, flowers, almonds and lemons. There’s hazelnut and strawberry here, too. Complex. The palate has a long, powerful and smooth-honed feel with very assertive citrus flavors, driven by long acidity. A perfect 2008."
"There’s a supernova of sensation with each sip of this powerful version, This burns bright from start to finish, yet its fine integration and lovely, raw silk–like mousse pull it all together into a seamless, vibrant package.""
