Krug Vintage GB 2003 750ml
Krug 2003 tells the story of the year and reflects the challenges faced.
It includes a higher quantity of wines from black grapes than usual and thus also a smaller amount of Chardonnay (29%), which was used sparingly to bring aromatic richness. Expression and vivacity come from the wines of the plots of Meunier (25%) from villages such as Sainte Gemme, Villevenard and Courmas. The Pinot Noirs (46%) with their lovely structure and body – from the south and north-facing slopes of the Montagne de Reims – add balance and freshness.
After over a decade gaining finesse in the cellars, Krug 2003 can be enjoyed now or for many more years to come. As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2003 will continue to gain with time.
At first sight, a subtle yellow gold colour highlighting a reserved finesse.
On the nose: there are notes of citrus, plum, liquid honey and brioche.
On the palate: fresh summer fruits, surprising red grapefruit along with candied peel, roast chestnut and caramelized apple tart.
