24th August 2015
On 25 September, Sotheby’s New York will offer not only a rare bottle of Krug, but a once in a lifetime experience for the winning bidder and three friends who will enjoy the Krug 1915 Experience with a two-day visit to the vineyard and cellars in Reims with tours led by sixth-generation family member, Olivier Krug.
For the winning bidder, this unique experience will include a tour of the vineyards, with Olivier Krug, a tasting of Champagnes from Clos du Mesnil through five vintages and dinner at L’Assiette Champenoise, where three-star chef, Arnaud Lallement, will prepare a specific menu around a tasting called: ‘Journey in the Krug Universe’.
On day two, a vertical tasting will be held in the cellar with the highlight of opening, then tasting, one of the four last bottles of Krug 1915.
The empty bottle will then receive a replica of the original label and be presented to the buyer in a tailor made oak box, with a dedicated photo album.
Auction: 25–26 September.
Bids start at $15,000.
