Singapore Airlines Will Serve $300 Vintage Krug in First and Suites Class
Krug Grande Cuvée is a superb champagne, and a number of airways serve it in worldwide firstclass. It’s a mix of wines from 10 or extra vintages and from a mixture of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier. And it’s cellared for at the very least six years. You’ll typically pay $160 or extra in a bottle store.
One of the extra spectacular moments in worldwide firstclass is the beginning of any Singapore Airlines flight while you’re provided champagne. It goes one thing like this,
Flight attendant: Would you take care of some champagne, sir?
You: Why sure please.
Flight attendant, with a smirk: Would you like Dom Perignon or Krug?
You: Well that relies upon, what yr is the Dom?
The reply to this query could not matter, I do know loads of individuals who will want Krug whatever the classic of Dom Perignon being provided. I discover Dom to be extraordinarily variable from yr to yr. But Krug does have a sure consistency, and no airline provides classic Dom from a particular yr. They supply the Krug Grande Cuvée.
Or do they?
Via Zac George Singapore is introducing Krug 2004 “on all First Class and Suites flights where both” Dom Perignon and Krug are usually served.
The 2004 classic of Krug will retail for about $300+, or double the value of Krug Grande Cuvée. (I’ve discovered it on-line as little as $275 plus delivery per bottle, nevertheless.)
This could also be just a little excessive, British singer Lianne La Havas providing a music choice “to express the emotion she felt when tasting Krug 2004.”
I haven’t tasted the 2004. However I’d count on that it is just too younger to get pleasure from. It’s going to be tight, and I think about it will go flat by the point it opened up in the glass. I’ve learn some reviewers who consider it should in the end be a wonderful classic, albeit not of the standard of the 2002.
Of course Singapore Airlines can not simply purchase 2002 Krug in enough portions to provision firstclass for any time period. It’s at all times simpler to acquire the present launch of any wine. I simply want they’d cellar it for a time earlier than serving.
Not flying Singapore Airlines firstclass any time quickly? You can spend SkyMiles for Krug Grande Cuvée.
