Krug Rosé – a relatively recent addition to the House – is an unexpected rosé Champagne combining distinction and boldness. Inspired by the dream of the fifth generation of the House of Krug to conceive a rosé Champagne that did not yet exist, every year a new Édition of Krug Rosé is created.

Krug Rosé is everywhere they don't expect it to be, in terms of texture, colour and taste. It is a remarkable Champagne which encapsulates the same creative spirit of Krug Grande Cuvée, again surpassing the very notion of vintage.

Tasting notes:
'Very pale salmon-peach, a beautifully soft, silky mouse – almost a true crémant style – with very fresh, delicate, summer fruits and fine acidity. This is the one Krug cuvée that must be drunk young.' – Tom Stevenson, Decanter, 98/100

'A lovely, creamy rosé Champagne, seamlessly layering vivid acidity with the range of dried fig, poached apricot and Mandarin orange peel fruit notes, offering exotic accents of grilled nut, curry spice and dogwood blossom that expand and echo on the finish. Disgorged Winter 2015. Drink now through 2025.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 96/100

'Quite deep strawberry pink. Tiny bead. Massively fruity. Explosive yet super-smooth fruit. Clearly this can age.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 18/20

'Krug Rosé is both unexpected and daring. It shows a broad and extensive aromatic palette, unusual for a Rosé Champagne. As you taste Krug Rosé, you will discover harmonies of puff pastry and red-berry tart, which develop towards honey and citrus fruits. Its floral accents and notes of dried or stewed fruit will enthral your palate. Its extreme delicacy is enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles.' – Winemaker
