Tasting Notes

Rich and mouthwatering, this powerhouse Champagne is driven by vivacious acidity. The expansive palate features flavors of glazed apricot, toasted brioche, candied kumquat and ginger, espresso crème, fleur de sel and cognac. Offers a long, lingering, well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2030.

Score: 97

Very fragrant. This has developed bright, ripe red cherry fruit aromas, vanilla cream, sweet roasted almond biscuits, some marzipan, tobacco, lemon meringue and chalky minerals. The palate has an assertive core of fine acidity with more yellow fruits expressed on entry, like peaches and nectarines. Good ripeness, superfine acidity. The redder fruits build as it goes; cherries and raspberries, yellow plums to close. Full of life. Drink now or up to 20 years, it will go the distance.

James Suckling, 13 July 2015

Brioche, dried pear, smoke, almonds, chamomile and wild herbs are all laced together in Krug's 2000 Vintage. A wine of striking depth and resonance, the 2000 is absolutely gorgeous today. The first signs of very early tertiary complexity have begun to appear while the acidity is softening, both of which make the 2000 delicious today. At the same time, there is no hurry. I imagine the 2000 will still be gorgeous 20 years from now. Slight elements of reduction linger on the close. The blend is 43% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier, a rare vintage in which Chardonnay is quite high. ID 313041.

Antonio Galloni, Maturity: 2014 - 2034 01 November 2014

Beautiful texture and mouthwatering acidity bolster a rich, nutty undercurrent and layers of quince paste, dried apricot, mineral, lemon curd and fleur de sel. A note of coffee grounds lingers on the subtle finish. Drink now through 2018.
