Since the foundation in 1843, Krug has had a longstanding reputation for the quality of its Champagne, most especially for its Vintage and Grand Cuvee productions, with a strong global following from wine connoisseurs and Champagne lovers. To the delight of collectors around the world, there is actually a very limited number of Krug Vintage bottles that are kept further in ideal conditions in the House's cellars until it blossoms into a "second life" and reveals a new personality of the vintage, becoming "Krug Collection". The Collection often offers more complexity and depth than the Vintage, and becomes a whole different experience.
Being one of the top sought-after prestige champagne, Krug Collection packed with a beautiful wooden case of an individual bottle, with very limited quantities available in the market, this is also a benchmark investment option for wine collectors and investors.

The 1988 Krug Collection, a 2017 disgorgement, offers an enticing bouquet of grilled walnut, baked bread and a touch of freshly baked gingerbread on the nose, displaying exquisite delineation and focus. A tang of bitterness on the entry refreshes the senses. This champagne is impressive in terms of depth and salinity. Vibrant and bright, it conveys a sense of completeness, so that you can’t help coming back for just one more sip. At its peak? Probably.
97pts Antonio Galloni
The 1988 Collection is at that magical place where Champagne starts to become more vinous and wine-like. Apricot, chamomile, graphite, mint and lightly honeyed notes gradually open with a bit of time in the glass. Gracious and understated, with silky contours and exceptional finesse, the 1988 is a total knock-out. Krug ID: 417035. (Originally published in May 2021)
