The experience starts with a tour of Krug's legendary vineyards. The tasting begins that afternoon with five different vintages of the houses legendary champagnes from Clos du Mesnil – merely a warmup for an epic dinner at Reims L'Assiette Champenoise, where famed three Michelin-star chef Arnaud Lallement will present a tasting menu called "Journey in the Krug Universe". Day two begins at the maison's legendary cellars. Olivier Krug will present the bottle of 1915, the start of a vertical tasting in the cellar itself. The guests, Olivier Krug, two members of Krug’s official tasting committee and Sotheby's doyenne of wine Serena Sutcliffe will share their impressions, which will then be registered as the official tasting notes of Krug Private Cuvée 1915. If you plan to be among the chosen, let us make you some suitable attire. You wouldn't want to be undressed for making history.
