At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year. A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the Music of the year, captured by Krug.
Krug 2006 is a story of indulgence, roundness and elegance, nicknamed “Capricious Indulgence” by the House.
THE YEAR 2006:
The year 2006 was considered a hot one in Champagne, with extreme highs and 23 days recorded over 30°C. It was a capricious climate that went from dry periods to intense rainfall – in August, 2 months of rain fell in only 2 weeks. Fortunately the sun returned to complete the ripening period shining on a beautiful harvest. Grapes had a balance close to 2002 and 1989, which were also beautiful and generous years.
