Krug

Krug was established in 1843 by German, Johann-Joseph Krug. The house owns 20 hectares of vines in Ay, Le Mesnil and Trepail with long term contracts with growers to provide the rest of the grapes for production. Krug`s growers consider themselves part of a long-standing prestigious group that openly reveal Krug as the destination of their grapes. All Krug`s wines are meticulously produced and hand-picked Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grapes are pressed and fermented in oak barrels. The second fermentation on yeast lees lasts at least five years. One of the great Champagnes, Krug is renowned for producing rich, complex wines with intense aromas, heady flavours and fresh acidity.

Champagne

What is it about Champagne? The first choice for celebrations of love, success and life's rites of passage for generations, the exclusive sparkling wines from the Champagne region of France hold a special place in the world of wine. The most northerly of France's wine regions, Champagne's history of sparkling wines dates back to 1668 when Dom Perignon, a local monk, is said to have created the method still used to produce Champagne today. The chalky soils of Champagne are home to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, all employed in a typical Champagne blend. The northerly location of the vineyards means that ripening can be a problem, so using a blend of grapes is critical. Most typically made in a brut, or dry style, non-vintage (NV) Champagne is a blend of wines from a number of years. Vintage champagnes, made only in the best years, are aged extensively before release, creating richer, biscuity flavours.

Pinot Noir

Fickle to grow, tricky to make and often majestic to drink, Pinot Noir is the grape of Burgundy, and grown all over the world, most notably in Oregon, New Zealand and California. It is also one of the major blending grapes for Champagne. While the wines from the old world and new are undeniably different, Pinot Noir is a very distinctive variety and its wines reveal soft strawberry and cherry flavours with a heady aroma and often complex savoury characteristics when the grapes are placed in the right hands.
