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.&nbsp&nbspOn the palate, astonishing, balanced and delicate with significant fresh, tropical, wild and crystallised 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.&nbsp Vintage 2002The expression of the year 2002 as revealed by Krug: Ode to Nature. Krug 2002 is an homage to fruit. It is a charismatic Champagne which beautifully combines natural intensity, delicacy and insolent elegance.&nbsp&nbsp 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. The House did not hesitate to create Krug 2002, naming it Ode to Nature to express the music of an extremely serene and generous year with perfect conditions for highly-expressive wines centred around fruit of all types with a beautiful structure, great intensity and elegance.

Krug 2002 is a blend of selected wines of the year from many different plots, marked by its undeniably profound fruity character. It is a balanced dialogue between Pinot Noir (40%) and Chardonnay (39%) with Pinot Meunier (21%).&nbsp&nbsp The elegance of Krug 2002 comes after 14 years in the cellars gaining in harmony and finesse.

Vinous
This is perhaps the best bottle of Krug's 2002 Vintage I have tasted. Expansive and creamy on the palate, with lovely finesse and brightness, the 2002 is quite expressive today. I don't see the depth or pedigree that might place this wine among the best examples of the year. Instead, the 2002 Vintage continues to be an underwhelming wine by Krug standards.

Krug er uden tvivl et af verdens mest eksklusive Champagnehuse. Domænet er beliggende i Champagne-regionen i det nordøstlige Frankrig, og blev grundlagt i 1843 af tyskeren Johann-Joseph Krug. Hans drøm var at lave den bedste af den bedste Champagne, som kunne frigives hvert år uanset de årlige variationer i klimaet. En drøm som helt klart er gået i opfyldelse den dag i dag. Joseph Krugs filosofi, var at man ikke skulle opdele husets Champagne i hierarkier, og denne tankegang fastholder Krug i dag, hvor huset tilbyder syv forskellige Champagner, alle med deres helt eget udtryk, men uden at være opdelt i bestemte hierarkier. I stedet er det antallet af Champagnen, der bestemmer prisfastsættelsen.

Selvom domænet i 1999 blev solgt til luksuskoncernen Louis Vuitton-Möet-Hennessy (LVMH), er det stadig et medlem af Krug familien, som leder Champagnehuset – nemlig Olivier Krug, som er den sjette generation af Krug familien. Dette sikrer at husets autenticitet lever videre, og at Krugs Champagne stadig bliver lavet efter grundlæggeren Johann-Joseph Krugs principper.

Krug er Champagne med individualitet og stor personlighed. Som den nuværende kældermester Julie Cavil siger det bedst ”Vores job er, i en slurk at genforene den mest komplette sensoriske oplevelse, en Champagne kan tilbyde”. Noget som man i den grad må sige, at de lykkes med gang på gang hos Krug.

Champagnen gæres altid på egetræsfade, hvilket giver den karakteristiske rige, fyldige og nøddeagtige smag. Champagnen fra dette legendariske hus ældes med ynde og bør nydes ligeså.
