Winemaker 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

W&S 97
Wine & Spirits

When first released two years ago, the wine showed some of the exoticism of the 2000 vintage, the broad flavors ranging from lobster broth to lemon zest and star anise. As it has matured, the wines richeness is at once more baroque and more seamlessly woven into a deep golden beauty. Rather than fresh, it feel brisk and lithe. The wine's fragrance is layered in deep complexities and elevated to sunny high notes. A glorious vintage of Krug.

WS 97
Wine Spectator

Rich and mouthwatering, this powerhouse Champagne is driven by vivacious acidity. The expansive palate features flavors of glazed apricot, toasted brioche, candied kumquat and ginger, espresso crème, fleur de sel and cognac. Offers a long, lingering, well-spiced finish. Disgorged summer 2013. Drink now through 2030.

International Wine Cellar

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.

The Wine Advocate

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.

Champagne Krug
Since 1843, with unique single-mindedness and sense of purpose, the Krug family has proudly cultivated the markedly individual character of their exceptional champagne. Theirs is a living legend, a certain idea of excellence that has been quietly redefined through six generations without a break.

Krug's founder, Johann-Joseph Krug, was a maverick who turned his back on a comfortable position in an established champagne house to strike out on his own. He had not only the vision,... View More
