Krug 2000
Stormy Indulgence

Krug 2000 is rich, precise, complex and indulgent. The House of Krug wanted to create a vintage for the last year of the millennium, based on the unusual and climatically chaotic season. Known as Gourmandise Orageuse (Stormy Indulgence) this vintage brings together the complexity and the generosity of a very exciting year. Krug 2000 is one of the most intense, dramatic and romantic Krug Vintages ever made.

Portrait of Eric Lebel
This bottle spent at least 11 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in summer 2011. Composed of a selection of the year's most characterful wines, Krug 2000 is the expression of the year 2000 revealed by Krug.

The growing season of 1999-2000 was one of heightened drama. A violent tornado struck at the end of December, followed by a late budding due to spring rains. In midsummer, a brutal hailstorm savaged the region, taking a particularly heavy toll on the Pinot Noir vines north of the Montagne de Reims. Thankfully a milder summer followed, although the storm clouds were never far away. The first grapes were gathered on 11th September and, despite the year's tumultuous character, the two-week-long harvest gave us a bountiful yield of indulgent grapes with intense flavour.

After several tasting sessions, for no blending decision is taken at Krug before tasting, it became clear that the notes of ripe citrus fruits from a selection of the Chardonnay plots in Trépail and Villers-Marmery would provide the perfect counterbalance to the expressive white wines from certain plots in Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Finally, the Meuniers from plots in Sainte-Gemme and Villevenard brought their distinctive vivacity to the blend.

The final composition of this bottle of Krug 2000 is 42% Pinot Noir, 43% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier.

At the House of Krug every Vintage is crafted to be different, celebrating the distinct character of a particular year. It is as if Krug 2000 were the music of the year, captured by Krug.
Eric Lebel

Tasting notes

Beautiful, intense golden colour that begins to reveal the year.

Aromas of caramel, nougat, hazelnut, freshly baked pastries fresh from the oven.

Flavours of citrus-fruit gratins, lime zest with a very long finish and persistence.

Storing & serving

  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 1
    The richness of your Krug Champagne is fully revealed between 9°C and 12°C (49°F - 54°F). Serving your bottle too cold would refrain the aromas’expression.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 2
    Krug has created The Joseph, a unique crystal glass whose shape enables the bubbles to reach their optimal expression and allows the discovery of the incredible bouquet of aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 3
    If you do not have The Joseph glass, you may prefer a white Burgundy glass to a flute, to enable the expression of Krug Champagne’s flavors and aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 4
    As a Prestige Cuvée, Krug Champagnes age beautifully, the time revealing their richness and elegance.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
    Your Champagne should be stored in a wine cellar, or in a cool (between 10 to 15 °C - 50 to 59 °F) dry and away from light place, the exact conditions of Krug cellars.

ratings

"A powerhouse, with a dense and expressive core of toasted brioche, candied kumquat, espresso crème, crystallized honey and salted pistachio flavors. The fine, creamy mousse and well-meshed acidity lend a sense of finesse that cloaks the firm structure and exuberance of this impressive Champagne." – AN

Wine Spectator 2015
Note: 97/100

Grand vinous depth although a formal perfection less complete than Krug Grand Cuvée.
