Krug Rose 26eme Edition NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 58513

SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2021
A mouthwatering rosé that wraps a racy spine of acidity in the plushly creamy, cashmere-like mousse, offering a fine frame for the rich and finely meshed range of flavors, with baked raspberry, passion fruit and Mandarin orange peel fruit accented by chopped hazelnut, fleur de sel, candied ginger and lime blossom notes that echo for days on the vivid finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged autumn 2019. Drink now through 2030.
WS9696 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
The best bottle of Krug Rosé we’ve tasted in some time, this is a glorious pinot noir, cloud-like in its raspberry and forest floor scents. It follows a chalk line of flavor, seamless and linear while the wine rolls and tumbles in precisely choreographed length. Delicate pink heaven in a glass.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
Aromatic, with orchard blossom, ginger and kumquat hints, this vibrant rosé shows a beautiful marriage of intense acidity and flavor range, allowing notes of peach skin, blood orange granita, toasted coconut and Marcona almond to play and expand on the palate as they ride the lovely, lacy mousse. Offers a lasting, racy finish. Disgorged Spring 2016. Drink now through 2025.
ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2000
Pale copper-orange. Extraordinary, Chambolle-like nose hints at wild strawberry, coconut, lanolin, nut skin and Christmas spices. Very fine mousse. Extremely rich but very dry, with complex but subtle flavors of strawberry, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and smoke. Bright, harmonious acidity. Very dry but clinging and penetrating on the aftertaste. Consistent with Krug’s other releases, this utterly singular Champagne is more wine than rosé.
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2019
The NV Rosé 22ème Edition captures all the best of the Krug house style. Wonderfully fresh and vibrant, with a classic hint of reduction, the 22ème is simply pristine. The Krug Rosé has typically been a Champagne of freshness and tension. That is very much the case here. Readers should expect a crystalline, taut Rosé full of citrus, white flowers chalk and red berry fruit, all supported by veins of salivating minerality and acidity. This is such a compelling and alluring Rosé. This release is based on 2010, with reserve wines back to 2005, a relatively compact range of vintages. I loved it.
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2010
The beauty of Krug’s rosé is the sense of bottle age, of that extra richness. That means the wine is not just the sum of its delicious red berry fruits. It’s also the way the wine is rounded out, filled with secondary flavors, toast and almonds and a taut minerality. The aftertaste is taut, dry, seamless, complex.

Where It's From

Region / Champagne

View more wines from Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

JS100100 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, February 3, 2022
This is very structured and framed with an almost red sensibility. Very phenolic. Full-bodied in a tightly wound ball with so much going on. Very pinot like. Mineral and stone. Shell and stone. Iodine. Vinous. The bubbles just fade into the finish of the wine, which goes on for minutes. Turns to toffee and salted caramel with time in the glass. One for the cellar. Great length. Blend of 53% pinot noir, 25% pinot meunier, 22% chardonnay. Disgorged in beginning of 2020. Drink or hold.
SP9999 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2021
There’s a supernova of sensation with each sip of this powerful version, starting with the vivid streak of mouthwatering acidity that drives a rich panoply of ripe black currant, mandarin orange peel and grilled nut flavors, accented by hints of candied ginger, briny oyster shell, verbena and ground cardamom. This burns bright from start to finish, yet its fine integration and lovely, raw silk–like mousse pull it all together into a seamless, vibrant package. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Disgorged autumn 2019. Drink now through 2038. (Alison Napjus)
VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2021
The 2008 Vintage is a nervy, electrifying Champagne, the likes of which has not emerged from Krug’s cellars since the magical l1996. Bright and sculpted, with tremendous precision, the 2008 dazzles from start to finish. Stylistically, the 2008 doesn’t have the toastiness or explosive breadth often found in young Krug, but that in no way detracts from its magnificent beauty. Krug ID: 419044. (Antonio Galloni)
WE9797 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2021
A vintage Champagne from this producer is rare. But 2008 was a great year in Champagne and that shows in this intense, still amazingly young wine. Freshness works with the richness to give concentration, density and the sure-fire possibility of long-term aging. So drink now, but the Champagne will last for many years.
RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Sep 2021
Krug’s 2008 Brut is slated to be released at the end of 2021, but any readers who purchase the wine will need to exercise considerably more patience if they are to enjoy it in its prime, as it is very tightly wound out of the gates. Unwinding in the glass with a youthfully discreet bouquet of clear honey, dried fruit, walnut oil, Meyer lemon and rock salt, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and incisive, with a racy spine of acidity, a pretty pinpoint mousse and a penetrating, saline finish. The polar stylistic opposite of the rich, demonstrative 2006, the 2008 is a rather understated, taut vintage from Krug that isn’t as liberally endowed with the house’s characteristic toasty patina as its immediate predecessor.
WS9494 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/21
From a cool, relatively dry year in Champagne, Krug’s 2008 is blended from pinot noir (53 percent), pinot meunier (25 percent) and chardonnay (22 percent). Released in the fall of 2021, the wine is dense and concentrated, still tightly wound. While it shows some savory maturity, the wine’s meaty intensity suggest its evolution has barely begun. Great Krug vintages last for decades, and this one should evolve into a classic.

Mouthwatering, this rich version layers flavors of black cherry, crystallized honey, toasted almond and grilled plum, with refined texture and racy acidity. Offers a long, creamy finish. Disgorged June 2012. Drink now through 2022. 6,500 cases made. (Alison Napjus)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2012
Laurent’s NV Brut Blanc de Noirs wraps around the palate with rich, resonant fruit, honey, almonds, dried flowers and spices. Hints of ash, smoke and licorice develop in the glass, adding further complexity. Based on the wine’s complexity, I would not be surprised if there is a fair amount of reserve wine in this release. Disgorgement date: June 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2016.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2023
This has an angular quality to the integration of firm acidity, the lively bead and the flavors of damson plum, salted almond and grated ginger. The smoky underpinning lingers on the finish. Enjoy this with food, grilled shellfish or other seafood. Disgorged December 2021. Drink now. 4,930 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
There’s a seashell-like minerality to the scent of this wine, and a cool, dark cavern feel to its flavors. It’s tight and dry, with fleshy lemon citrus notes firming up the finish. This is 100 percent pinot noir, selected and blended from three vintages. Serve it with poached salmon for brunch.

Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse. Drink now through 2022. 222,500 cases made, 29,000 cases imported.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A vivacious Champagne, this shows flavors of black cherry, toast point, white peach puree and salted almond set on a finely detailed mousse. Creamy and mouthwatering on the spiced finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. 58,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
The quality of this nonvintage wine from Piper-Hedsieck is a sign of the increasing quality of the range as a whole. It’s a wine that hovers comfortably between freshness and maturity, between a soft dosage and crisp fresh apples. This bottling is ready to drink.
ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2005
Medium straw. Light gold, with a strong mousse. Smoky, rich and floral on the nose, with suggestions of orange peel, pear and jasmine. Nicely concentrated and moderately weighty, with flavors of lemon cream and buttered toast. Quite long, with the butter and lemon notes resonating.
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2008
Ripe pears, crisp green apples and flowers emerge from Piper-Heidsieck’s NV Brut Cuvée. This medium-bodied non-vintage Champagne offers excellent persistence and a long, clean finish. It is a very solid effort at this level. The Brut Cuvée is 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. This is lot L070921 12253, disgorged December, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.
WS8686 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
Simple, ripe and smooth, this is a gentle, soft style of Champagne for parties.

Hints of ripe peach, passion fruit and juicy acidity are carried on a tightly knit, satiny mousse in this firm rosé, layered with spiced plum, dried cherry, smoke and star anise notes. Try this with charcuterie. Drink now through 2018.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2012
A smoky, fresh rosé, lightly chalky in texture, showing delicate flavors of crème de cassis, gumdrop, grilled plum and ground spice. Minerally finish. Drink now through 2018.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2020
Fresh and balanced, with a pretty range of wild strawberry, orange blossom, whole-grain toast and ground ginger flavors riding the silky mousse. Drink now through 2023.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
A lacy rosé Champagne backed by bright acidity, this offers notes of strawberry preserves, pastry cream, toasted brioche, orange blossoms and smoke set on a fine, zesty bead. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2009
A light, copper-colored rosé, this basks in light, sweet red fruit and flowers. It’s soft, but keeps its sweetness in check, ending with cedary finesse. For seafood sausage.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2003
At first blush, the bouquet is rich and impenetrable, but when it opens citrus comes on strong. Chewy apple fruit with some Pinot heft define the palate, while licorice and anise add character to the finish. Plump, round and a pleasure to drink. Very substantive.

A harmonious Champagne, with well-knit, mouthwatering acidity, offering hints of bread dough and spun honey that enrich flavors of black cherry, salted almond and preserved lemon. Not a powerhouse, but this shows good focus while remaining fine and creamy in texture. The minerally finish shows hints of smoke and oyster shell. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
An elegant version, fine and creamy in texture and backed by lively, orange peel acidity. A streak of smoke-tinged minerality underscores flavors of almond madeleine, poached pear, anise and preserved lemon. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 31, 2023
This is showing aromas of apricots, grapefruit, pears and short crust. Some walnuts, too. Medium-bodied, with soft bubbles and tasty nut and pie crust notes at the end. Blend of pinot noir, meunier and chardonnay. 24 months on the lees. Tasted from a magnum bottle. Drink now. (James Suckling)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
Bright and balanced, featuring a fine, lively bead, mouthwatering acidity and a lightly toasty profile of poached pear and black currant flavors, with rich hints of lemon curd and pastry cream. Drink now through 2020. (Alison Napjus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2012
Tart red-fruit scents give this a vinous profile, fragrant with cranberry, root vegetables and ginger. It finishes clean, with cool limestone minerality. Cellar this for a year to let the flavors develop further.
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2018
Well balanced, this Champagne, even with its enormous production, remains a benchmark and is always enjoyable. In this bottling, ripe white fruit is cut with citrus, with an edge of toastiness that gives complexity. Drink now.
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2021
Based on the challenging 2017 vintage, the current release of Moët & Chandon’s NV Brut Imperial was disgorged with seven grams dosage (representing a reduction of around 50% in the last 20 years) and contains an unusually high proportion of reserve wines. Offering up aromas of pear, peach and citrus oil mingled with hints of fresh bread and white flowers, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and pillowy, with racy acids and an enveloping core of fruit, complemented by a pinpoint mousse and concluding with a nicely defined finish. Impressively seamless, it’s a fine rendition of one of Champagne’s largest bottlings. (William Kelley)
