Krug Vintage 2002
Behind every precious drop of Krug stands the dream of a visionary. One man who, long before others, understood that the essence of Champagne is pleasure. So, over 170 years ago, Joseph Krug broke with convention to follow his vision. To create the most generous expression of Champagne every year, regardless of climatic unpredictability. Joseph’s bold experiment proved a triumph and he succeeded in creating Champagne like never before. And like no other Champagne House since. To this day, the House of Krug lives and breathes his enduring philosophy, creating only prestige Champagnes since 1843.
This fairly sizzles with energy. If you put your ear to it, I’m sure you can hear it crackling. Zesty, powerful lemon and cracked wheat and yeast flavour, firm acid line draws it long and precise – like a string pulled to near breaking point – closes lip smacking and dry. Will cellar a long time, and subject to vagaries of cork, should repay your patience handsomely. Classic release.
