At the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage celebrates the distinct character of a particular year. A Krug Vintage is a blend of the most expressive wines from a single year enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Every Krug Vintage is different: it is the Music of the year, captured by Krug.
The expression of the year 2002 as revealed by Krug: Ode to Nature. Krug 2002 is a charismatic Champagne which beautifully combines natural intensity, delicacy and bold elegance. It is the first Krug Vintage of the Millennium and was presented after Krug 2003, just as Krug 1988 left the cellars after Krug 1989. As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2002 will continue to gain with the passage of time.
This bottle spent at least 12 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in summer 2014.
