This blend consists of 140 wines blended from 13 different years.   The youngest dates back to 2010 and the oldest to 1998, and reflects the amazing craftsmanship that goes into the creation of this outstanding champagne.  The final composition of this bottle is 45% Pinot Noir, 39% chardonnay and 16% Meunier.

"It is a very expressive wine with great precision and elegance – and a nose of white hedge flowers and lemon blossom.  Red wild berries and dark red cherries hit the palate with vibrancy followed by grilled almonds and hazelnuts flicked with honey, grapefruit, peaches and lemons.  There is the presence of gingerbread, jellied fruits, touches of marzipan spread on a biscuity  & toasty base, and then interspersed with fine shards of praline.   Layers of chalk and mineral are sprinkled over the whole palate- giving amazing length and great potential to age.

A layer of nougat entwines itself through this classy and brilliant Grande Cuvée, and the persistent mousse ensures this wine will be a great keeper." - Bernadette O'Shea, Champagne Consultant

"Compared to Krug's 160th edition, the bright golden-yellow colored NV Grande Cuvée 166ème Édition (ID117010) is still a baby that shows the chalky and fruity features of a young white Burgundy intermixed with notes of Schwarzwälder Kirsch (dark cherries with black chocolate) and floral (ammonia) flavors on the pure, fresh and elegant yet intense and still yeasty brioche nose with its ripe apple aromas and refreshingly bright (lemon juice) overtones. Round, wide and very elegant yet also straight and tense on the palate, this 2010-dominated cuvée is very delicate, fresh and chalky but also dense and lush in its vinous texture. The finish is well-structured, fresh and persistent, indicating great complexity and vibrancy." 96+ Points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
