Product Notes:
Slightly Soiled Label
Krug Grande Cuvée multi-vintage is blended to reflect the house's style year after year. Remi Krug said, "It has so many nuances that it's like a symphony with many, many instruments making beautiful music -- so many facets that it goes on and on". "Krug Grande Cuvée is as a symphony, a composition where the instruments all play together, complementing each other in total harmony," -Winemaker, Henri Krug

Oddly, the most consistent Krug wine I have been tasting lately is their non-vintage Brut Grand Cuvee, a big, boldly styled Champagne with smoky, earthy, pear, apple, and spicy aromas as well as flavors, loads of effervescence, and fine body and depth. -Wine Spectator The complex nose of grain, biscuit, citrus and honey indicates some use of wood, while the palate is tight and elegant. What's most impressive is the texture, all filigree and finesse, from start to finish. An elegant version, with subtle intensity and length. Drink now through 2010. -Robert Parker

Food Pairing:
Recommended food pairings for specific champagnes: Although these are only guidelines as taste is a very personal thing.
Brut non vintage:
Scrambled eggs,Any mushroom dish Nuts, especially almonds Popcorn and potato crisps Cheese- especially hard cheeses such as parmesan, gouda or cheddar. Pasta or risotto-especially with cream or mushroom sauce. Avoid heavy tomato-based sauces as the acidity clashes with the high acidity of the champagne. Thin crust pizza, but not with heavy tomato-based topping.
Rose
Vegetables Fish and seafood Poultry and game birds ie duck
Blanc de Blancs:
Sushi,Goats cheese. Poultry especially duck Pink-roasted lamb Seafood and fish Vintages: All fish and seafood dishes especially with rich, creamy sauces. Duck Caviar Desserts that are not too sweet may be accompanied by a demi-sec champagne. Chocolate can be accompanied by an extra brut or demi-sec or a full flavoured dry rosT.

Recipe:
An intimate setting or wedding reception begs for one of these Champagne Cocktail recipes. But don't stop there! A champagne cocktail adds a special touch to any party suitable for champagne. Just use the party-size recipe version below and follow the make-ahead tips for easy party preparation.
Party-Size Champagne Cocktail Recipe

1/2 cup simple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons Angostura bitters
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup Cognac (or Brandy or Grand Marnier)
2 (750ml) bottles champagne
Orange twist halves and cocktail cherries for garnish


Simple Syrup: Dissolve 1 part sugar in 1 part boiling water. Cool.

Chill all ingredients before assembling. Combine simple syrup, bitters, lemon juice and Cognac and set aside. Refrigerate if making ahead. When you are ready to serve, thread the orange twists and cocktail cherries onto picks and insert in champagne flutes. Pour the simple syrup mixture into a pitcher. Gently stir in the champagne. Pour into flutes. 14-16 servings.

Tip:Make as much of the simple syrup mixture as you think you'll need ahead of time. Use a scant cup of the mixture per 2 bottles of champagne.
