Krug Champagne

Yesterday I was invited for a luncheon at the Krug House in Bel Air which sits on top of a hill overlooking Los Angeles. Krug’s Cellar Master Eric Lebel was in town for the day from France (and for the first time stateside) presiding over a casual crowd of champagne lovers and food enthusiasts (Eveliegh provided the most amazing cheeses and fois gras… yes, I cheated and was happy to do it!) I love the ethos of the brand, again not to harp on nostalgia but Krug is amongst some of the oldest brands (it was founded in 1843) in the world, in the same vein as Hermes, Bentley and the stable of brands which are part of their now parent company LVMH, that all pride themselves not just on a perfect product but a beautiful lifestyle. More pics from the event below…

The view and the champagne…
