CHAMPAGNE'S GREATEST NV BLEND, WITH A SPECIAL EDITION PAIRING

This includes one half-bottle of Krug's world-class Grande Cuvée Champagne, one jar of gourmet onion jam hand-selected by Krug, and Crostinis.

When you ask who makes the best Champagne in the world the conversation inevitably circles back to Krug. Known for their unparalleled non vintage Grande Cuvee, the storied maison simply outclasses other houses with their attention to detail in the cellar. Where your average non vintage Champagne will be based around a three year old wine with maybe 15% of wine from the prior 3-5 vintages, Krug's current Grande Cuvee is based around wine from 2012 & 2013 with an astonishing 42% of wine coming from reserves dating up to 15 vintages prior. As you can guess, the resulting complexity is dizzying. Only in a bottle of Krug do you find blood orange peel, kumquat, and lemon curd dancing right alongside honey, hazelnut, and dried apple.

Fittingly for a house so obsessed with blending flavors, Krug puts together a yearly collaboration with renowned chefs to highlight a given ingredient and pairing. This year is the year of the onion. "Really?" You ask, "The humble onion?" While it is unexpected it does make good sense: after all, the same process that carmelizes onions (the Maillard reaction) also gives Krug it's signature roasted vanilla and caramel notes. So without further ado, we offer this gift basket. A half bottle of Krug, a jar of gourmet onion jam, and accompanying crostini. Pair it however you want, but I'm pretty sure this is what they serve chicken and waffles with in heaven.
