Krug Trilogy Case
Description & Technical Information
-
This Limited Edition Krug Trilogy Case 2002 is a decadent celebration of one of Champagne's greatest ever vintages. An almost perfect growing season fostered a magnificent harvest that produced grapes with levels of ripeness and maturity never before seen. This case includes one 75cl bottle each of Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 158 NV (based on 2002), Krug 2002 and Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. This helped create a harvest at Krug that was marked by great homogeneity and superb balance. The vintage has been named "Ode to Nature" to express the music of an extremely serene and generous year, generally considered one of the best harvests in the last two decades.

Krug Grande Cuvée Edition 158 NV | Krug ID: 108002
Exceptional freshness in the mouth is accompanied by notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat and jellied fruit. Rich and tangy flavours of lemon and grapefruit are enhanced by the subtlety of the fine and elegant bubbles. This has tremendous power of fruit, brioche, baked apples, vanilla and spice and a length of flavour that goes on and on. The precision of recent releases is unprecedented and just how many decades they might hold in the cellar is anyone's guess. The ultimate non-vintage.

Krug 2002 is extremely expressive from the opening, natural intensity and elegance that combines to create fruit aromas. A delicate and balanced fruit-forward palate that is emphasised through honey notes with hints of smoke and toast. As expected from such an excellent vintage, this has a long and lasting finish. There is no doubt this is the best Krug vintage you can buy and probably their best release in the last 25 years.

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 | Krug ID: 115024
The 2002 vintage needs no introduction, but this expression is in a league of its own. Astounding powerful, its like a fruit salad bowl with hints of vanilla. Elegant and stunning all at once, it has a beautifully rich mouth-feel that lingers on and on. Great acidity and years of potential. Rich, elegant, precise and pure, this is just wow.

Each bottle of Krug has a Krug ID on the back label which enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. You can do so using the smartphone App or on the Krug website.

Krug Trilogy Case 2002 includes three 75cl bottles as described, presented in a beautifully crafted and branded wooden case (as shown in the picture on the left).
