99 points, “The tightness and tension of this is impressive, considering the youngest wine from this is 2015 (hot and dry year), with some wines going back to 2000. Ginger and orange zest. Some creme brulee. It's medium-bodied with apple, pie crust and floral character. It's salty and zesty yet, at the same time, complex and gorgeous. Chamomile and other floral teas highlight everything. Turns rich and flavourful at the finish. Terrific release. It really takes off at the end.” - James Suckling 

94 points, “The NV Grande Cuvée 171ème Edition... is precise and well-structured, with a fleshy core of fruit and a sapid, incisive finish. Crafted around the 2015 vintage, the blend comprises 131 reserve wines from as far back as 2000 (42% of the total blend) and is expected to age beautifully over the next decade.” - Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate 

95 points, “The NV Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition (2015 base vintage) is bright and focused in the glass, showing notable tension and tons of class. Citrus peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper all lend remarkable brightness to a Grande Cuvée that is built more on linear cut rather than volume. Krug is always among the first houses to pick. The 171 clearly shows that style.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

Each year the House of Krug honours the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, with a new Édition of Krug Grand Cuvée and the 171ème Edition is the latest release. The 171st edition is a blend of 131 wines from 12 different years, ranging from 2000 to 2015, and along with a maturation of seven years in the cellars, Krug has created a remarkable expression with elegance, balance and fullness.  

The light golden hue and fine, vivacious bubbles tempt you in whilst the delicate floral aromas, ripe preserved fruit, zingy citrus notes, marzipan and gingerbread delight the nose. Further notes of citrus, from quince to lemon and limoncello, combine harmoniously on the palate with the subtle toasted and dried fruit nuances leaving an impressive mouthfeel with structure, sophistication and complexity. Dive into this enticing bottle now or if you can, leave to develop for another 10 years.
