Krug

Krug

Johann-Joseph Krug was originally of German origin before he moved to France in the 19th century. He first became an accountant at Champagne Jacquesson, but after some years he moved to Reims and founded Krug et Cie (together with a sleeping partner) in 1843.

Almost immediately his champagne received fame because of its full flavor, power and vinosity. Since Joseph Krug (he waived the name Johann, which wasn’t a common name in France) was fluent in multiple languages such as English, French, German and he also spoke some Russian, he was able to explore the international market too.

Multiple generations of the family Krug have managed the company since. However, in 1999, the house of Krug was sold and became part of the LVMH conglomerate. Olivier Krug, the 6th generation of the Krug family, became “Directeur de la Maison”.

Currently Krug produces 6 types of Champagne. First the “Grande Cuvée” (80% of total sales), which is a blend of up to 150 wines coming from 10 or more different vintages, up to 35 years old. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are used from various vineyards. It takes at least 20 years to create a bottle of Krug “Grande Cuvée.

Furthermore there are the “Krug Rosé”, the “Krug Vintage” (composed of wines from only one vintage), “Krug Collection” (Older vintages of their Champagne which have been kept in the house cellar for an extensive period of time), “Clos du Mesnil” (A single vintage, limited produced “mono-cru”,which consist of one grape variety (Chardonnay), from a single 1.84 Ha walled vineyard in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger) and “Clos d’Ambonnay” (Another extremely rare, single vintage “mono-cru”. This time only produced from Pinot Noir, which vines were planted in a walled 0.68 Ha vineyard in Ambonnay.) Their portfolio belongs to the best Champagne has to offer!
