TASTING NOTES

"Tightly knit, this is finely textured and expressive. Savory hints of fennel seed and cardamom accent dried apricot, bread dough, hazelnut, creamy espresso and grapefruit zest notes, remaining racy and focused through to the lasting, lightly briny finish. Drink now through 2027." Wine Spectator

"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. ID 313041." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Tasted blind from a bottle (the other 2000 in this blind tasting was poured from a magnum). Deep coppery gold. Very emphatic and savoury, with a hint of something like oakiness – sort of white burgundy character. Then obviously rich and broad on the palate in terms of weight and exotically spicy before being zipped up on the notably dry end. Peacock’s tail sneaks up on you. Seems quite mature. Is this the 2000?" JancisRobinson.com
