Vinopuro's advices
Recommended glass
Glass
Ballon flute
Glass
It is the perfect goblet for classic method sparkling wines (or champenoise) and champagne: being narrow, with a pointed bottom, it favors the development of bubbles (perlage), avoiding their dispersion; the body of this glass is a little wider than a classic flute and favors the perception of more intense and complex aromas.

Description
Champagne Grande Cuvèe 168ème Édition Brut is produced by the famous Krug maison, a reality that has become, over the centuries, synonymous with the absolute excellence of fine French bubbles. To create this label, which pays homage to an idea of the founder Joseph, the company focuses on a blend of over 120 "reserve" wines from different vintages. The final composition (the Cuvee) in this case includes the majority of Pinot Noir grapes (52%) with an addition of Chardonnay grapes (35%) and a small percentage of Pinot Meunier (13%) from the best vintages. Once the assembly of the "reserve" wines has been completed, the second fermentation in the bottle is foreseen, typical of the Metoto Champenoise. The wine ages for about seven very long years on the lees until the moment of the traditional "disgorgement", followed by a minimal addition of "liquer d'expedition". The Champagne Grande Cuvèe 168ème Édition Brut is excellent right away, but reserves the best surprises over time, expressing itself in an extraordinary way even after 10 years of rest in the cellar.
