Hailing from Reims and standing firm since 1843, Krug is a globally-acclaimed Champagne producer revered for its extraordinary quality and ingenuity. While its ownership changed hands to Moët Hennessey in 1999, the sixth-generation Krug, Olivier, oversees the operations, ensuring it remains a family affair. Krug's wine portfolio consists exclusively of premium offerings, with 20 hectares of vineyards dedicated to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes. Krug has begun transitioning to predominantly organic viticulture, although they have chosen not to seek certification for practical reasons.
Renowned parcels, such as Clos du Mesnil and Clos d’Ambonnay, deliver some of Krug's finest yields. A standout production from the house is the "Grande Cuvée," a harmonious blend of 120 base wines across 10 vintages, each maturing up to 15 years. The Krug team, under the guidance of Éric Lebel, promotes an intricate vinification process, employing neutral 205-L oak barrels for individual parcels - of which there are 250. They avoid malolactic fermentation to maintain mineral sharpness and enforce a lengthy cellar aging of 5 to 10 years before the wine sees the world.
Joseph Krug, the non-conformist founder, envisioned a Champagne house where all expressions held a distinct, uniform level of excellence. This dream continues to resonate within the Krug ethos, evermore amplified by subsequent generations. The painstaking attention to the character of each plot, coupled with a vast library of reserve wines, grants Krug the ability to deliver great Champagne year after year.
Krug's commitment to sustainability manifests in their ISO certification for environmental practices, energy management, and food safety management, leading the way for LVMH Maisons in receiving the Positive Luxury title.
Their Champagnes bear a unique signature with a nose of toasted, grilled, pastry, or almond notes, a result of at least 6 years of aging sur lies. The palate introduces fresh fruit, especially citrus, maintaining a freshness through careful grape selection. With residual sugar levels never exceeding 6.5g/L, Krug wines are predominantly dry, crafting an indelible impression of their relentless pursuit for distinction.

In Stock orders going out via Local Same Day placed before 2pm (pst) on business days will go out the same day. Weather permitting, In Stock orders going out via FedEx, Climate Controlled Ground and Temperature Controlled typically ship within 1-2 business days unless requested otherwise. We always do what we can to make sure your order won’t spend the weekend in a non-temperature controlled logistics hub and in order to facilitate this, we may hold your order for shipment the following week unless you tell us not to.
We do not fulfill partial orders by default, so if your order contains a combination of In Stock and In Transit/Pre Arrival items, we'll automatically hold the In Stock items until everything is ready. If you wish to receive your In Stock items in advance of your In Transit and/or Pre Arrival items, we do ask that you place two separate orders. If you forget to place two separate orders, but still want to receive your In Stock items first, please send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll take care of it for you.
