Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have been creating the finest and rarest Champagnes. Crafting exclusively prestige cuvées every year, Krug is the best-rated Champagne house in the industry.
Krug Vintage is crafted only if the year has an exceptional story to tell, and Krug 2002 is an homage to fruit. It is a charismatic Champagne which beautifully combines natural intensity, delicacy and insolent elegance, after 14 years aging.
The year 2002 offered a clement and generous climate, consistently warm, relatively dry, granting the ideal conditions for grape maturation. As the grapes arrived at the press, they were in excellent and robust health. The 2002 harvest for Krug was marked by great homogeneity and superb balance.
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier
Color: At first sight a lovely bright golden color.
Bouquet: Very charismatic fresh nose, promise of natural intensity and elegance with strong presence of fruits. A diverse bouquet of orange aromas with some notes of licorice and light chocolate biscuit can be enjoyed.
Palate: On the palate, astonishing, balanced and delicate with significant fresh, tropical, wild and crystallized fruits. It is a hymn to fruit: red, white and citrus fruit with notes of cassis, chocolate, candied orange peel, cocoa beans, honey with hints of smoke and toast enhanced by a vibrant, persistent long finish.
Recipes like duck breast with its juice in reduction, roasted butternut squash and kumquat chutney or a lentil curry stew marked with orange zest can pair deliciously with Krug 2002. As a dessert, an orange tiramisu or a cinnamon brioche with a carrot, ginger and lemon mousse would also combine beautifully.
Krug 2002 has a Decanter score of 98.
