Krug Family are donating six rare magnums of their famed Krug
Collection to raise funds for the restoration of the famous statue of
La Reine de Sabat which graces the main door of Reims Cathedral where
all but one of the Kings of France were crowned.
six Krug lots consist of two magnums of each of the 1964, 1973 and 1979
vintages in their original wooden boxes. The Krug Collection 1964
magnums would make a seriously mouthwatering gift for friends or family
celebrating a 40th anniversary before the end of the year.
champagnes, especially in magnums kept forever in the cellars in Reims,
have exceptional longevity and often seem much fresher than their age
would suggest - perhaps partly because of their fermentation in small
French oak casks (becoming increasingly fashionable in Champagne).
Krug will sign personal Krug Collection certificates for the successful
bidders of each lot which are to be auctioned by Christie’s in Paris
next Wednesday 27 oct.
Christie’s have already begun accepting sealed and telephone bids for the Krug Collection Magnum Lots. All enquiries should be directed to Christie’s Paris tel +33 1 40 76 83 97, at firstname.lastname@example.org or via www.christies.com
