Krug 2003

Product Description

As the restaurant critic Paul Levy once put it "Krug is the champagne that God gives his angels when they have been especially good!"

The house was established in 1843 by Johann Joseph Krug who hailed from Mainz in Germany. Ever since, the firm has been run by a father and son partnership and this is one of the things that makes Krug such an outstanding company. The Krugs are also perfectionists and it is not unusual for 50 different wines from 25 different villages, 10 different vintages and three different grape varieties to go into their 'house' wine, the Grande Cuv‚e NV. Typically some 30 to 35% of the blend comes from older wines.

All Krug's wines are vinified in 205 litre barrels made from weathered Argonne oak which lends flavour to the wine but in no way dominates the final balance.

Characterized by the warm glow of yellow gold and the fragrant aroma of flowers in bloom, Krug 2000 is an enchanting champagne of astonishing purity and precision. From its creamy, caressing texture, through its full, finely balanced flavours, to its extraordinarily long finish, it is a study in harmony ? delicate, refined, captivating.

Krug Vintage is designed to blend vintage character with Krug?s house style. Krug selects young fermented wines which best represent the character of that particular year. The three grape varieties are blended to create harmony: Chardonnay?s elegance, Pinot Noir?s fullness and the fruit of carefully selected Pinot Meunier grapes bring finesse and complexity to the wine.
