Grande Cuvée Jeroboam

Some occasions have to be marked with Champagne and graduation is most certainly one of them.

Krug Champagne has been quietly redefining excellence since 1843. Six generations of the Krug family have cultivated the character of their exceptional Champagne and today, both the 5th and 6th generations still supervise every phase of production, tasting, and blending Krug to meet the family’s exact specifications.

Krug Champagnes are renowned to continue to age well, long after leaving the cellars and over time to develop an intensely rich, nutty flavor that remains remarkably fresh. Whether this bottle gets drunk as part of the graduation day celebrations or is kept for another special occasion, this Grande Cuvee makes for a very special kind of toast.

This Jeroboam (3 Liters) of Krug comes packed in its own beautifully finished wooden box.
