Description & Technical Information
-
The potential for a Krug vintage champagne is identified during the blending of Krug Grande Cuvée. Once the non-vintage blend has been secured and all of the reserves earmarked, the wines displaying the most pronounced character of the vintage are blended to create the vintage champagne.

Krug ID: 313058 | Each bottle of Krug 2000 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.

Weather: The 2000 vintage was hot, rainy and stormy, producing a bountiful harvest of astoundingly rich grapes. Krug decided to create a vintage for this last year of the millennium and dubbed it "Gourmandise Orageuse" (Stormy Indulgence) to reflect this unusual and climatically chaotic year.

Tasting Note: Despite its tumultuous season, there's a gentle and calm demeanour to Krug 2000. It is aglow with yellow summer fruits and grapefruit with a really lemony and powerful nose. Rich, precise and indulgent in the mouth, this vintage brings together the complexity and the generosity of a very exciting year. Krug 2000 is one of the most intense, dramatic and romantic Krug vintages ever made. It also has a very high ageing potential.
