This time my journey with Krug Champagne brought me to Kitzbühel in Tyrol. Besides being one of the most famous skiing regions in Austria, especially well known for it’s aprés ski parties, there is even more to be explored.
Autumn in the Tyrolian Mountains
Everyone is crazy about escaping autumn in Austria although destinations like the Faroe Islands are basically popular to explore due to their foggy and dreamy landscapes. Well if you go for a walk in the woods of an austrian mountain on a rainy September day you will get pretty much the same impression. „So why search somewhere else when the good stuff is close by“ – is a quote my granddad always says.
Krug Rosé Champagne
Talking about good stuff: Drinking a glass Krug Rosé champagne is pretty much the best you can do after a walk in the Kitzbühel “rainforest”.
PT. III of my journey with Krug at the Vinothek Klosterhof
“Krug Champagne is the Louis Vuitton Bag in the champagne scene, ” Bruno from the Vinothek Klosterhof perfervidly told me. I’m not sure if he was aware of the fact that Krug indeed does belong to the LVMH group. ;)
However my appreciation for Krug is as a matter of fact growing with every single sip.
Bruno hreally has a passion for what he is doing. He will assist you with his expertise including the luxury champagne segment at the Vinothek Klosterhof.
Krug Rosé impressions
Eric Lebel (Chef de caves – head winemaker) has a more detailed information about the outstanding Rosé for you: Krug Rosé is the only prestige cuvee rosé to be blended from a rich palette of wines from three different grape varieties, and from such a wide range of years. These are blended with a wonderfully expressive skin-fermented Pinot Noir wine to deliver its unparalleled and characteristic colour and spice. A resting time of at least five years in Krug’s cellars gives Krug Rosé its subtle bubbles and long-lasting elegance.
He also notes: “Krug Rosé is decidedly the most non-conformist of Krug Champagnes. Since I’m a lifetime non-conformatist I’m absolutely caught by the outstanding taste of Krug’s Rosé.”
As you taste Krug Rosé, you will discover harmonies of puff pastry and red-berry tart, which develop towards honey and citrus fruits.”
I hope I could open up your mind and taste receptors to a more luxurious experience. You might say no, that you can’t afford a Krug Rosé as an everyday item, but to be honest this Rosé Champagne is meant to be enjoyed in order to celebrate and when you want to have something unique. For that matter I think it’s pretty much the Limited Croc Louis Vuitton bag you always dreamed of in Champagnes, but in a still affordable way.
