Krug 2002

The expression of the year 2002 as revealed by Krug : Ode to Nature.

It is a charismatic Champagne which beautifully combines natural intensity, delicacy and insolent elegance. Krug 2002 is the first Krug vintage of the Millennium.

As with Krug 1988, released after 1989, Krug 2002 comes after 2003. As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2002 will continue to gain with the passage of time.

Portrait of Eric Lebel
This bottle has spent over 13 years ageing in the Krug cellars gaining depth, harmony, finesse and elegance. It has received its cork in summer 2015. 

An additional year of rest before leaving the House completed the harmony and beauty of this bottle of Krug 2002.

Krug 2002 was created to be different, to be the expression of the year 2002 with its distinct character as captured by Krug. Krug 2002 reveals the music of the year 2002 as perceived by Krug; there are as many compositions as there are Krug Vintages.

Eric Lebel, Krug’s Cellar Master, did not hesitate to create Krug 2002, named Ode to Nature in the House as it expresses an extremely serene and generous year, centered on fruit of all types, with a beautiful structure, intensity and elegance.

“Krug 2002 is the result of a clement and generous climate, consistently warm and relatively dry, granting the ideal conditions for grape maturation. The harvest started on September 14th and, as the grapes arrived at the press, they were in excellent and robust health.

The 2002 harvest for Krug was marked by great homogeneity and superb balance between maturity and freshness, very much in line with our standards. Wines were round and bold, very attractive and structured; aromatic, delicate and very long. Persistence on the palate was identified in most wines from the very first tasting sessions. All wines were straight and intense, and then, what was astonishing, was the generosity of each tasting. Every single wine seemed to be itself the result of the art of blending.

The year 2002 is a tribute to fruit of all types: citrus, tropical, white, yellow and red, fresh or jammy, they were all intensely present and sometimes they could almost all be found in just one wine; a very good expression of each plot from Saint Gemme, Villevenard and Coulommes. Some of our historical plots from Mesnil sur Oger, d'Oger, Avize, Trépail and Villers Marmery added some spice, such as acacia and pepper, to all the sublime fruit, bringing finesse and elegance. Ambonnay, Bouzy, d'Ay and Mareuil-sur-Ay provided great structure.

Fruit, intensity and generosity are all common denominators in the tasting notes of the base wines of this year. Very strong and well-defined characters were all sources of inspiration to express the circumstances of 2002.

The final creation is a balanced dialogue between the Pinot Noir (40%) and Chardonnay grapes (39%), with 21% of Meunier providing the final and decidedly Krug touch. 

What energy!
Eric Lebel

Tasting notes

At first sight a lovely bright golden colour.

A very charismatic fresh nose, promise of natural intensity and elegance with strong presence of fruits, fruits of all types. A diverse bouquet of orange aromas with some notes of liquorice and light chocolate biscuit can be enjoyed.

On the palate, astonishing, balanced and delicate with significant fresh, tropical, wild and crystalised fruits. It is a hymn to fruit: red, white and citrus fruit with notes of cassis, chocolate, candied-orange peel, cocoa beans, honey with hints of smoke and toast enhanced by a vibrant, persistent long finish.

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.

" It is chock-full of acidity and life, is really muscular and (...) intellectual. (...) There is nothing in excess; a great example of the Krug art of assemblage. Very solid and concentrated but not heavy at all."
