At the House of Krug each Krug Vintage is crafted to be different, created to reveal the expression of a year’s specific character, captured uniquely as only the House of Krug can. There are as many stories as there are Krug Vintages.
Krug decided to create a vintage for this last year of the millennium and named it “Gourmandise Orageuse” (Stormy Indulgence) to relate the infinite indulgence provided by this unusual and climatically chaotic year. Krug 2000 is a blend of wines of that year, coming from many different plots, Krug’s very expressive dialogue of: powerful Pinot Noir (42%), aromatic and expressive Chardonnay (43%), generous Pinot Meunier (15%). Krug 2000 features extraordinary finesse thanks to more than ten years in the cellars.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful, intense golden color that begins to reveal the year. Aromas of caramel, nougat, hazelnut, freshly baked pastries fresh from the oven. Flavors of citrus-fruit gratins, lime zest with a very long finish and persistence.
