Moncharm | Krug 1996
Moncharm believes the 1996 label from the House of Krug is extraordinary, to say the least. First caressing the senses with a pleasant bouquet of aromas then transitioning into a full-bodied, ripe flavored wine, the Krug 1996 is exciting and exuberant. It masterfully combines acidity with a palate of pear, spices, butterscotch, apple blossoms and candied lemon, which ends in an exquisitely long finish. Definitely one for the ages.
Founded by Joseph Krug in 1843, the House of Krug is a prominent champagne producer from Reims, France. Managed by the same family and house over the years, Krug is known as one of the finest producers of champagne in the world, and is now owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy • Louis Vuitton S.A, owners of Moët & Chandon, Ruinart, Veuve Clicquot and more. Since 2009, Olivier Krug has been the House Director, ensuring his family’s legacy lives on.
The Champagne region is best known for its sparkling white wine namesake, a beautifully complex drink with fresh and fruity characteristics. Characterized by chalk subsoil and cool temperatures which give the wine its distinct flavor and acidity, the most grown grapes here include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
