" Composed of a selection of wines representative of the vintage, Krug 2006 tells a fascinating story of a year full of contrasts, which we have nicknamed Capricious Indulgence"
Eric Lebel, Cellar Master, and Julie Cavil, Winemaking Director, House of Krug
Krug 2006 combines indulgence with generosity, elegance and roundness, all characteristics of a fine Champagne.
Cellar Master Eric Lebel selected the wines that best expressed the unique, silky roundness of the vintage, along with a good structure and length.
By paying close attention to every vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, he managed to identify the "melody" of the vintage. He brought it to life by creating a composition that is intense, generous and elegant melody.

"Conceived as a tribute to the unique story of a specific year, every Krug Vintage is different: it is the melody of a single year, captured by Krug."
