The much-anticipated 2002 has impeccable detail and depth with a lot of chalky, stony and flinty elements on the nose as well as a very fresh edge. The nose is very complex... very integrated and compressed. There are aromas of lemon rind, lime juice and a lime custard all at once, complemented in turn by a super-restrained hazelnut-like edge. Undertones of brown mushrooms, chalky minerals and lemon leaf. The palate has a core of sizzlingly intense, concentrated chardonnay framed whitin a powerful phenolic structure that will underpin the future of this Champagne. Flawlessly fresh and as perfect as it gets... James Suckling

This gets fresher every time I taste it. I tried it today with Olivier Krug at the property, and it had puligny scale and the most pure and long Mesnil belemnita chalk finish one could ask for.

Absolutely rockstar. This is a beautiful wine in a great place with tons of life ahead. Made the 04 Salon look a touch flabby.

Freshly released by krug, unsure if its commercially available at this time. Soon. Super bright bubbley briochey nutty yum. Consumed with the other 02 offerings from one of the 250 3 packs made

One of the finest bottles of Krug I've ever had. Bright and fresh with a hint of baked apple. Balanced and restrained. Soft and pure. This was more like a poem than a bottle of wine.

A very bright and light limestone nose with a touch of lemon. Beautifully fresh balanced and clear on the palate. Amazing length. Very light and very long... and young. I expect this will be great for decades. Really, really good.
