In 1872, the house of Champagne Krug, founded in 1843 in Reims by Johann-Joseph Krug and now owned by the prestigious LVMH (Louis-Vuitton, Moët and Chandon), is run by his only son, Paul, a lover of gastronomy, of great wines, hunting and travel. It is under his direction that the company developed, betting on the English market, to become a world reference for quality among champagne brands.

According to expert Ennio Frederico, a member of the Brazilian Academy of Gastronomy: "Krug established an excellent reputation in the 20th century with the launch of the Grande Cuvée composed of dozens of wines from different vintages. Krug also gained fame for fermenting the base wines in barrels of oak where each portion is vinified separately. This makes the wines more resistant to oxidation and, contrary to what many think, the wood does not interfere with the flavor."

This letter confirms the receipt of a batch of Champagne "Foudre Esprit" for reimbursement and is proof of the Krug family's extreme commercial attention to its customers, since the beginning of its fame.
