Krug Brut 2000
96 points Wine & Spirits: Building on the exotic character of the vintage, this wine's volumes of flavor range from lobster broth to star anise; the yeasty crust of a fresh baguette; the spritz of lemon zest. It's a vibrant 2000, remarkable for the delicacy and intricate detail attained within the confines of a single year. Oyster bliss with a West Coast Kumamoto. (Dec 2012)
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Krug Brut
An immense 2000, this carries Krug’s symphonic complexity into the confines of a single vintage. While the year created many broad, fat-textured wines, this one adds muscle to that vintage character, reading as bold, juicy, serious and sexy. Its richness bristles with tension, tightening around the robust power of the wine as if to capture the sweetness of the earth. Extremely long, this will age with grace.
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.
Light gold. A heady, complex bouquet evokes orange peel, poached pear, rye bread, honey and toffee, with gingerbread and smoke nuances. Deeply concentrated but energetic, offering intense, chewy orchard and citrus fruit flavors and suggestions of buttered toast, candied fig and anise. The smoky quality comes back strong on the finish, which displays superb breadth, energy and persistence. Showing plenty of early complexity for a vintage Krug but there's the requisite depth and power here to suggest that patience will be rewarded, or at the very least tolerated.

An expansive bouquet, an almost creamy texture. Then, an explosion of flavours, crisp mellow and mature,
Very aromatic, with lots of rose water, pickled ginger, ground coffee and cardamom accents on the nose and finely textured palate. The flavors of ripe black cherry, grapefruit granita, piecrust, fleur de sel and spun honey are enlivened by well-honed acidity, creating a mouthwatering impression on the lightly chalky finish. Drink now through 2028.
Krug’s 2000 Brut Vintage is just beginning to hit its stride. Hints of pastry, butter, toasted almonds, dried pears and apricots are all woven together beautifully in this distinctive, gorgeous Champagne. All the Krug signatures come to life beautifully in the glass. The 2000 is still quite young, especially if readers are looking for more tertiary complexity and nuance. At the same time. I don't think the 2000 will ever be one of the most explosive wines made at this historic property, but it offers considerable medium-term appeal and plenty of personality. This is a great showing from Krug. Anticipated maturity: 2020–2040.
