Lot #326. Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition NV

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Champagne.
Score: 96 AG.
"The NV Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition, (2014 base vintage) is rich, ample and explosive. Wonderfully fresh and vibrant, the 170 offers an exotic mélange of dried orchard fruit, pear, spice and crushed flowers. Chef de Caves Eric Lebel was not especially excited about 2014 when I saw him a few months after the harvest, as yields in Pinot Noir and Meunier were adversely affected. Perhaps for that reason the 170 contains more reserve wines than most editions. Regardless, the Krug team crafted an absolutely brilliant Grande Cuvée. The blend is 51% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay and 11% Meunier, vintages 2014 through 1998." Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2023
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $330
