Krug Rose–a relatively recent addition to the House-is an unexpected rose champagne combining distinction and boldness. Inspired by the dream of the fifth generation of the House of Krug to conceive a rose champagne that did not yet exist, every year a new Edition of Krug Rose is created.

Krug Rose 21st Edition is a blend of 57 wines, the youngest of which dates back to 2008 and the oldest to 2000. Its final composition is 51% Pinot Noir, 41% Chardonnay and 8% Meunier.The addition of 10% traditionally macerated Pinot Noir red wine from the House’s plot in Ay gives Krug Rose 21st Edition its enchanting color, length, and spiciness. Krug Rose 21st Edition spent at least seven years in Krug’s cellars developing its particular expression and elegance.

At first sight, its subtle pale pink color holds a promise of elegance. On the nose, aromas of rose hips, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper & pink grapefruit. On the palate, delicate flavors of honey, citrus & dried fruit with a long finish, enhanced by its fine bubbles.

Krug Rose can be enjoyed alone or with foie gras, lamb, game, white meat, venison, anchovies or even dishes with spices.Krug Rose is not recommended for desserts, unless they are not too sweet, and best accompanies very savory dishes.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This wine has richness, maturity and intensity. It offers so many complexities and layers of flavor that come together in a red-fruit-flavored, lightly toasty wine that has freshness as well as some age. Drink now. - RV (12/1/2018)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Aromatic, with orchard blossom, ginger and kumquat hints, this vibrant rosé shows a beautiful marriage of intense acidity and flavor range, allowing notes of peach skin, blood orange granita, toasted coconut and Marcona almond to play and expand on the palate as they ride the lovely, lacy mousse. Offers a lasting, racy finish. Disgorged Spring 2016. Drink now through 2025. - AN (June 2018)
