One of France’s most respected and celebrated Champagne houses, Krug was family owned for 165 years before it became part of LVMH in 2008. With an exclusive repertoire of masterfully blended wines and Champagnes, and the specialty Grand Cuvée varietal, the house has perfected the art of the bubbly libation. The heir, Olivier Krug, is still deeply involved as the house master and oversees the 50 acres of vineyards, expansive cellars and country house that comprise the property. While Krug is not open to the public, Indagare is able to coordinate tours and tastings at this extraordinary estate. An afternoon at Krug includes a walk through the picturesque vineyards and cellars as well as a blending workshop to learn how the master blender combines multiple vintages and varieties to create the lauded Grand Cuvée without a formula, just memory and taste. As one of the most innovative Champagne houses, Krug has collaborated with renowned musicians to pair their music with specific Champagnes, a special and unique tasting experience for any Champagne connoisseur. An elegant and exquisitely prepared dinner held inside the grand mansion house concludes the visit, expertly complemented with Krug’s finest reserves.
