01 The Guiding Force of Time… Exceptional Pleasure —Champagne Krug – Olivier Krug

Poetic, magical, non-conformist are three adjectives that describe Krug Champagne and the philosophy of pleasure strictly adhered to by the House of Krug. Popping champagne cork and amplified sounds of champagne bubbles in a glass are adventures you can create at home. Every experience is deeply personal, yet meant-to-be-shared. Olivier Krug is sixth generation vintner from The House of Krug, Reims.


02 The Individual Wines of Krug Champagne a Journey of Sensations and Emotions – Olivier Krug

The fullest expression of Champagne… this is what Krug guarantees. In 1848, his son still being too young to take over the Champagne House, Joseph Krug consigned the founding principles of the House to posterity in a deep cherry-red notebook. The notebook symbolizes the act of recollection, but it also and above all represents the generous legacy made by a visionary to his family and to Champagne itself. It is a unique token that is now presented to guests at Krug’s historic home on rue Coquebert, Reims.
