Krug 1995 comes from the mixture of wines from 18 different terrains, Chardonnay (35%), Pinot Noir (48%) and Meunier (17%), which combine to create a Champagne with extraordinary harmony.
Spicy or exotic dishes (japanese, chinese, indian, thai) with crystallized ginger and other spices, also scallops, fish, shrimps or chicken with pineapple light gravies. lobster with paprika and sauterne sauce, veal with black pepper or light mustard sauce can all be excellent pairings. for desserts, any one which contains roasted fruits (apple and/or peaches) can be well enjoyed.
The richness of your Krug Champagne is fully revealed between 9°C and 12°C (49°F – 54°F). Serving your bottle too cold would refrain the aromas’expression.
