Krug Rosé 27th Edition: the essence
Krug Grande Cuvée 27th Edition is a blend of 38 wines from 9 different vintages, the youngest of which dates back to 2015 while the oldest to 2005. An additional 10% Pinot Noir of the vintage, macerated traditionally, comes from the blend of plots in Aÿ and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ bringing spicy notes, color and structure. Its final composition is: 57% Pinot Noir, 23% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier. Resting for about seven years in Krug cellars gives Krug Rosé 27th Edition a unique expression and elegance
Krug Rosé 27th Edition was composed from the 2015 harvest, a year marked by unprecedented heat and drought from late May through mid-August, slowing the development of the grapes. Fortunately, the rains and reasonable temperatures in the second half of August allowed the grapes to grow in optimal conditions. The harvest took place in the rain between August 31 and September 21, with excellent heterogeneity among the various plots. The final blend gathers the year's grapes from meticulously selected plots, combined with reserve wines from 8 other years. Overall, reserve wines from the Maison's extensive collection make up 55 percent of the final blend of this edition of Krug Rosé.
