[one]One of the famous Champagne houses that formed part of the membership of the Grande Marques. Founded by Johann-Joseph Krug a German immigrant from Mainz. Henri Krug along with Eric Lebel are currently responsible for the wine making decisions. The house is now part of the global luxury brand conglomerate LVMH of which they are considered the crown jewel. The house style is very distinctive and easily recognisable due to the 100% barrel fermentation policy and extended lees aging. Rich, full, creamy, nutty and a certain oakiness are all very obvious characters.[/one]
