    Winemaker's Notes:

    You may be touched by Krug 2000 expressive aromas of caramel, nougat, hazelnut, freshly baked pastries fresh from the oven. Or by the flavors of citrus-fruit gratins, lime zest with a very long finish and persistence. Krug 2000 has a very high aging potential.

    Pair with caramelised scallops with pineapple, spicy sauces, rich gravies, squab, confit of vegetables or citrus fruits, sweet-and-sour sauces and even spices. Excellent with desserts containing roasted fruits (bananas, peaches, citrus fruits).

    Critical Acclaim:

    Building on the exotic character of the vintage, this wine's volumes of flavor range from lobster broth to star anise; the yeasty crust of a fresh baguette; the spritz of lemon zest. It’s a vibrant 2000, remarkable for the delicacy and intricate detail attained within the confines of a single year. Oyster bliss with a West Coast Kumamoto.

    Tightly knit, this is finely textured and expressive. Savory hints of fennel seed and cardamom accent dried apricot, bread dough, hazelnut, creamy espresso and grapefruit zest notes, remaining racy and focused through to the lasting, lightly briny finish. Drink now through 2027.

    Light gold. A heady, complex bouquet evokes orange peel, poached pear, rye bread, honey and toffee, with gingerbread and smoke nuances. Deeply concentrated but energetic, offering intense, chewy orchard and citrus fruit flavors and suggestions of buttered toast, candied fig and anise. The smoky quality comes back strong on the finish, which displays superb breadth, energy and persistence. Showing plenty of early complexity for a vintage Krug but there's the requisite depth and power here to suggest that patience will be rewarded, or at the very least tolerated.

    Krug's 2000 Brut Vintage is very understated and cool. It boasts gorgeous textural finesse and layers of effortless fruit. This is an especially vibrant, floral Champagne for Krug that impresses for its fine balance and sensual personality. Even better, the 2000 drinks well right out of the gate, unlike 1995 and 1996. A superb, caressing finish laced with green pears, spices, flowers and almonds leaves a lasting impression. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.
