2003 Krug Brut 1500ml

$1,900.00

Krug is the first and, as yet, only Champagne House to create prestige Champagnes every year since its foundation in 1843.

At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year.

Krug Vintage is not the selection of the best wines of a good year, but the selection of the wines which better express the story of the year. The creation is then enhanced by a stay over ten years in Krug’s cellars.

Description

95 Points James Suckling
This shows a rich nose featuring deep and ripe chardonnay and pinot noir. Red fruits, some dark mushrooms, plenty of grilled nuts, caramel, some deep spices, dried citrus, lemon peel and bready aromas are all there. The trademark complexity is here, too, and this freshens with air. The palate is intricately detailed and stitched together like needlework. It is extremely precise and even, and the acidity is articulated with some finesse, even if this has much more in terms of phenolics as the leading structural component. The phenolics are rich and ripe, and they sit polished and even around immensely concentrated fruits such as peaches, nectarines and white cherries. The finish is deep, even and resonant. Drink now but rest assured that this will hold for a very long time – just as Krug has proven in other warm years such as ’76.

95 Points Vinous
Light yellow. Powerful, complex bouquet evokes fresh peach, pear, floral honey, green almond and smoky minerals. Deep, palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit flavors show outstanding vivacity for a hot vintage, picking up ginger and talc notes with air. The strikingly long, sappy finish features zesty orange pith, smoky minerals and an echo of honeysuckle. I’d be in no rush to drink this one.
