[Luxus+ Magazine] Krug x Citron trip to Brazil: in search of the perfect marriage between lemon and champagne

Each year, the House of Krug honors its philosophy by celebrating a single ingredient among the most modest, while inviting the renowned chefs of the Krug Embassies to create food and champagne pairings to accompany the new Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée and Krug Rosé. This year, the ingredient was lemon, and one thing’s for sure: the beauty of the zest was on display!


Each year, the House of Krug celebrates its expertise and founding principle of individuality by inviting the chefs of the Krug Embassies to express their creativity around a unique ingredient.


For the 2023 edition, associated with lemon, the House has brought together 12 chefs and Julie Cavil, Chef de Caves Krug, for an inspiring culinary experience in Brazil. In this country where over 200 varieties of this citrus fruit grow, the chefs showed great imagination in pairing them with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée 171st Edition or Krug Rosé 27th Edition.



For three days, these culinary artists explored this fruit in all its forms, flavors and colors. The smells of lemon trees, the scents of leaves and the tastes of zest inspired chefs from 11 different countries.
