1.5 Liters. Brioche, dried pear, smoke, almonds, chamomile and wild herbs are all laced together in Krug's 2000 Vintage. A wine of striking depth and resonance, the 2000 is absolutely gorgeous today. The first signs of very early tertiary complexity have begun to appear while the acidity is softening, both of which make the 2000 delicious today. At the same time, there is no hurry. I imagine the 2000 will still be gorgeous 20 years from now. Slight elements of reduction linger on the close. The blend is 43% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier, a rare vintage in which Chardonnay is quite high.
95 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous November 2014
Beautiful, intense golden colour that begins to reveal the year. Aromas of caramel, nougat, hazelnut, freshly baked pastries fresh from the oven. Flavours of citrus-fruit gratins, lime zest with a very long finish and persistence. Champagne House Notes
