“…the 163 is virtually impossible to resist”
– Antonio Galloni
We are pleased today to offer the utterly delicious Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 163 NV in Magnum format!
Crafted from the bountiful 2007 harvest, this champagne goes beyond the notion of a single vintage. It is a harmonious blend of over 120 individual wines from more than 10 different years, resulting in a truly exceptional creation. Each critic that tasted it just fell in love with this champagne.
Antonio Galloni gave 95 points and said that “The NV Grand Cuvée 163 Edition is wonderfully open-knit and giving, qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next 30 or so years.”
John Stimpfig awarded it with 96 lovely points and declared that it “provides huge pleasure with its supple acidity, creamy texture and delicate, persistent mousse.” while William Kelley defined the palate of the 163 cuvee such as “medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a ripe but racy spine of acidity, chalky structure and a long, penetrating finish.”
As you can see (or may feel!), it’s almost impossible not to resist to the mouthwatering while reading the tasting notes of this special champagne. What’s more, the magnum format enhances the wine’s aging potential, making it a must-have addition to your collection.

“This was the first Grande Cuvée to be labeled as an ‘Édition’. 183 reserve wines went into the blend from 12 different vintages, with the oldest being 1990 and the youngest 2007. It announces itself with a typically full and intense nose of brioche, citrus and honey, which follows through onto the broad, rich and focussed palate, a tangy mélange of lemon, almond, oatmeal and praline which is super-concentrated yet full of vitality and vim. This is clearly drinking well now and provides huge pleasure with its supple acidity, creamy texture and delicate, persistent mousse. (Drink between 2017-2030)”
96 points John Stimpfig – Decanter
“A complex bouquet of iodine, mandarin, warm biscuits, dried flowers, citrus oil and anise introduces the NV Grande Cuvée 163ème Édition, a wine that’s built around the 2007 vintage and is beginning to display some very attractive evolution. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a ripe but racy spine of acidity, chalky structure and a long, penetrating finish.”
94 points William Kelley
“The NV Grand Cuvée 163 Edition is wonderfully open-knit and giving, qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next 30 or so years. Pastry, apricot, lemon confit, chamomile and white flowers, along with soft contours, give the wine its inviting, alluring personality. There is more than enough energy and overall freshness to support several decades of fine drinking. Even so, the 163 is virtually impossible to resist at this early stage. (Drink between 2017-2037)”
