An enchanting bouquet. Full round aromas. A flavor of roasted hazelnuts whos depth is drawn out in the mouth ending in a flowery fresh note.
Wine Spectator 96 points - This multivintage blend nails the essence of Krug, intense richness of fruit and flavor without weight. Meaty mushroom and soy aromas are balanced by rich red fruits, citrus, toast and mineral notes. Long finish. Score: 94. —Joe Czerwinski, December 01, 2005.
Wine Advocate 93 points - Oddly, the most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvee, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth. Score: 93. —Robert Parker, December 2005.
The complex nose of grain, biscuit, citrus and honey indicates some use of wood, while the palate is tight and elegant. What's most impressive is the texture, all filigree and finesse, from start to finish. An elegant version, with subtle intensity and length. Drink now through 2010. 5,500 cases imported. Score: 94. —Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2005.
KRUG GRAND CUVEE
"Super texture, like velvet, offers the perfect backdrop for a kaleidoscope of flavors?coconut, ginger, vanilla, berries and tobacco. Beautifully integrated, with a firm underpinning of acidity keeping it all focused and fresh. Terrific length."

|Accompanies food well as long as not too acid or sweet, and all traditional and excotic dishes.
|Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have cultivated the markedly individual character of their exceptional champagne, showing that same single-mindedness and sense of purpose with which the founder, Johann-Joseph Krug, set out alone in pursuit of his objective of creating a champagne with a taste all its own.
