2002 Krug - Limited!

One for the Ages. We have been waiting for the release of this historic wine for years. Rarely does such a highly anticipated wine live up the hype but fear not the 2002 Krug Vinatage Brut more than delivers on it's promise.

2002 Krug Vintage Champagne Brut....$269.98
This is a fabulous wine from the greatest Champagne vintage so far this century. Still young, it blends almost equal amounts of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fleshed out with Pinot Meunier. The minerality and the rich apple and green fruits are balanced, and acidity cuts into the wine with a pure, perfumed line of freshness. The wine could be drunk now, but it will age well into the the 2020s.
