Already on the market is Krug 2003, a champagne with a deep, ripe chardonnay and pinot noir flavours, Krug’s Chef de Cave, Eric Lebel described the vintage as “half the size” of a classic Krug vintage, and being “very straight and direct with tremendous balance.” Scores of 95/100 from Antonio Galloni show that Krug only release when the vintage is ready.
Krug Grande Cuvée 158th Edition
If you had the chance to taste Krug Grande Cuvée 158th Edition with the base vintage as 2002, then you will know how spectacular this release is going to be. To our delight, 2000 bottles were found in Krug cellars and the champagne was exquisite and highly complex. Krug CEO Margareth Henriquez says ‘We only have a few bottles of Grande Cuvée from 2002, which is unfortunate, as it is delicious.’ Krug 2002 possesses huge ageing potential, Eric Lebel believes that its freshness, energy and intensity will see it continue to improve and evolve “for a long time.”
Unfortunately, 158th Edition Grande Cuvée is unavailable but Krug 2002 finally is. With a limited production and high demand, Krug 2002 is sure to hit the market with a bang. Allocations will be sold quickly so don’t miss out.
Krug 2002 is available from The Finest Bubble here.
