As this is so rare and we have such limited quantities of it, we have provided tasting note from the Cellar master herself - Julie Cavil and one or two reviews.
At first sight, its subtle pale pink colour holds a promise of elegance. On the nose, aromas of rose-hip, cured ham, mulberries, redcurrant, peony, pepper and pink grapefruit. On the palate, delicate flavours of honey, citrus and dried fruit with a long finish, enhanced by its fine bubbles complete the experience.
"The silky texture of this vivid Rosé Champagne draped the palate, offering an aromatic panoply of flavours, from pure raspberry and white peach fruit to ground cumin and anise, violet, graphite, spun honey and toasted almond. Delivers a long, mouthwatering finish." Wine Spectator 95/100
Technical details: A blend of 22 wines from seven different years, the youngest from the tumultuous 2012 vintage and the oldest from 2006, this champagne's final composition is 40% pinot noir, 32% meunier and 28% chardonnay.
It was completed with 11% pinot noir to add colour, vivacity and structure, and seven years in Krug's cellars helps to reveal its unique expression and elegance.
