The house was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, a native of the Mosel region in Germany, who had moved to France and spent some time working for Jacquesson, the leading Champagne house of the time. Krug's philosophy was that every Champagne should be the best possible expression, and eschewed the common idea of a hierarchy of Champagne. Instead, he began to craft a premium wine from a reserve of wines vinified separately by the growers themselves, a wine that would eventually become the Grande Cuvée. This wine sits alongside the likes of Dom Pérignon and Cristal at the top of the Champagne tree, and is a blend of 120 different wines from 10 or more vintages from the so-called Krug Library (a repository of still wines held prior to blending and refermenting in bottle). It is aged for six years, and is noted for its complex brioche and spice characters. Today, the wines are still vinified by individual plot, and are stored in the Krug Library. Every year, the chef de cave heads a tasting committee which decides on the final blend.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-13T18:50:06-04:00","created_at":"2023-02-14T03:44:22-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","nini1402","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Krug","Region_Champagne","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Sparkling Wine","Varietal_Champagne Blend"],"price":259899,"price_min":259899,"price_max":259899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42779623456906,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1996 | Krug | Vintage","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":259899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/26_374b93ca-41b0-4f6e-813c-2098567fb929.png?v=1676364303"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/26_374b93ca-41b0-4f6e-813c-2098567fb929.png?v=1676364303","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1996 | Krug | Vintage","id":24225750384778,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.554,"height":864,"width":479,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/26_374b93ca-41b0-4f6e-813c-2098567fb929.png?v=1676364303"},"aspect_ratio":0.554,"height":864,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/26_374b93ca-41b0-4f6e-813c-2098567fb929.png?v=1676364303","width":479}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eSparkling Wine: 1996 | Krug | Vintage \u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLight gold.
