Krug Grande Cuvée is born from the dream of one man, Joseph Krug, to offer the very best Champagne every year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Each Edition is a unique blend of many vintages, imparting a fullness of flavors and aromas, incredible generosity, and absolute elegance - something impossible to express with the wines of just a single year. 

Krug Grande Cuvée 168ème Édition is composed around the harvest of 2012. It is an exquisite blend of 198 wines from 11 different years, the oldest dating back to 1996. 

In this unique approach to winemaking, Krug selects from over 400 individual wines to create the final blend of Krug Grande Cuvée. The same is true for a chef selecting individual ingredients to become part of a final dish. To bring this philosophy to life, each year, Krug selects one single & unexpected ingredient and invites chefs to create recipes to pair with Krug Grande Cuvée. This year, Krug celebrates the Onion and invites you to pair your glass with a Three Onion Dip recipe below.

Origins


Krug has always lived up to its reputation as the first and only Champagne House to create exclusively prestige Champagnes every year since its foundation. The House was founded in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. He believed that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, and his dream was to offer the very best Champagne every single year, regardless of annual climate variations. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, and building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years allowed Joseph Krug to fulfill his dream. With a very original approach to Champagne making, he went beyond the notion of vintage to create the fullest expression of Champagne every year. He founded the House of Krug, in which all Champagnes are of the same level of distinction, each illustrating a particular expression of nature. Six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated his dream, enriching the founder’s vision and savoir-faire.

Recipe

  1. Dice the three yellow onions in preparation to caramelize them. Place the butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and stir frequently until they begin to get some color. Once they start to caramelize, deglaze with champagne to help soften them and add some sweet champagne flavor. Reduce, let the onions caramelize more and repeat until the onions are well caramelized and dark brown.
  2. Mix the onions with all of the other ingredients and serve warm or chilled.
  3. Serves 8-12 people
