Krug Clos du Mesnil Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2002

$995

Pure Chardonnay from the walled vineyard in the heart of Le Mesnil, this intense wine from a great vintage is tight and mineral, still showing hints of toast from its barrel fermentation...taut texture, complex acidity and crisp citrus...will age indefinitely. Showing the beauty of Chardonnay in Champagne at its best, it will certainly still be impressive come 2030. Wine Enthusiast

The 2002 Clos du Mesnil is wonderfully pliant and expressive in the glass. The radiant personality of the year comes through in the wine's ripe, tropically-leaning flavors and open-knit personality. I imagine the 2002 will develop at a relatively fast pace by Clos du Mesnil standards. Even so, there is more than enough freshness underpinning the fruit to support at least two decades of very fine drinking. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2017)

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.

A dazzling nose of fresh, bright white flowers and a steely undertow with flint. The palate is intense, with bright tight fruit and powerful but brilliant acidity. This is amazing stuff- still very young. Great stuff- for the ages

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.
