Krug 2002 Vintage Champagne Magnum 150cl

Krug 2002 was the first vintage Krug of the Millenium and is an assemblage of the most expressive wines of that year. The house named the vintage, "Ode to Nature", as they were blessed with perfect, consistently warm weather and an abundant, healthy crop. The 2002 magnums were aged for 13 years in the Krug cellars, one year later than the regular-sized bottles, and riddled and labeled both by hand.

This vintage of Krug is intense and has wonderful delicacy and elegance. Like the 1988, which was released after the more forward 1989, Krug 2002 was released after the 2003. It is most definitely built for the long haul, and promises to evolve majestically and slowly over several decades.

This vintage really showcases the quality and balance of the fruit grown that year. An exceptional nose, with fresh tropical and stone fruit, knitted together with a warm orange citrus note. In the background there is cocoa, biscuit, and even a subtle accent of liquorice. The palate brings more generous fruit, including redcurrant, white peach, and cassis, while evolved notes of honey, candied peel, cocoa beans and smoke are gently peeking through.
Duck breast with roasted butternut squash and kumquat chutney; Lentil curry marked by orange zest; Orange tiramisu
