\nA creamy plushness accents this tightly meshed ros? Champagne, with rich hints of toasted nut and caff? crema underscoring the baked currant and apricot fruit flavors. Well-honed acidity focuses this through to the mouthwatering, chalk- and spice-laced finish. Disgorged spring 2017. Drink now through 2025.

\nKrug Ros? has got darker over the years, a statement of intent perhaps, its significant 13% of macerated Pinot Noir sourced from a special plot in Ay. Despite this Chardonnay is the key shareholder in the blend, its 45% outweighing near equal measures of the two Pinots. Gravitas translates on the palate to cherry fruit and spice, herbs and hints of quince and rosemary; unashamedly complex for sure, gastronomically promising without a doubt. For all the power and glory, the wine is fresh, energetic and forward, its unrivalled pedigree immediately obvious for all to behold. Drinking Window 2019 - 2028
Krug Rose is bothunexpected and daring. It shows a broad and extensive aromatic palette, unusual for a Rose Champagne. As you taste Krug Rose, 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.
