The Ultimate Gastronomic Brunch Experience with Krug Champagne
The House of Krug was founded in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to offer the very best Champagne every single year, regardless of climate annual variations. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot, and with a very original approach to Champagne making, he decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the fullest expression of Champagne every year – Krug Grande Cuvée. A blend of more than 120 wines from ten or more different year. Around twenty years are needed to craft each bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée.
A crisp glass of Krug Grande Cuvée is best enjoyed with a range of dishes created with simple, core ingredients – a particularly perfect match for Chef Ferran Tadeo’s ingredients-driven creations at La Rambla. Guests may discern notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, flowers in bloom, sweet spices and a surprising element of jellied fruits. On the palate, savour the tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by Krug Grande Cuvée’s subtle bubbles, a welcome sensation during warm summer months. Elevate your brunch experience with the unique pairing experience offered by Krug Champagne, available at La Rambla on Sundays only.
