All Vintages of this wine
Krug 2002 celebrates the richness and diversity of nature. The prestigious Krug champagne House decided to name the vintage 2002 "Hommage à la Nature" - which literally means "tribute to nature" - in order to transpose the generosity, the homogeneity, and the serenity of the year 2002 in every glass of champagne. The colour is golden and bright. As for the nose, it is charismatic, very fresh, elegant, with deep, complex and rich fruity notes. Some very singular hints of orange, biscuit, chocolate and fresh licorice can also be perceived. At first, fresh, delicate and balanced aromas are brought out. Then it goes to red fruits, white fruits with a zesty sensation. The long and expressive finish is emphasized by hints of honey, cocoa beans, and toasted bread. What a deep and eloquent champagne!

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Krug's 2002 Brut (ID 415064 - disgorged IV/2015) has an intense citrus color and opens with a generous, intense yet fine and precise bouquet that indicates great depth and elegance. Red fruit flavors on the nose lead to a generously rich yet pure, highly refined and elegant palate, with lots of ripe cherry fruits and delicious yeasty flavors. This is a highly complex and tensioned but beautifully balanced 2002 with a charming dosage that gives perfect roundness. The finish, however, is clear, fresh and well-structured, if not taut, and very mineral. Tasted in Reims in April 2018.
