Stunningly complex and layered with evolving auto lysis aromas adding nuance and depth to its distinctive fruit profile. Great acidity and grip here, so better wait another 5+ years before pulling another cork. Amazing length.

Finally was able to taste the 2002, way too young and clear why they waited and held this release back. This should easily go up a few more points with time, maybe perfection.

Delicate, finessed, lean. A feminine expression of a beautiful vintage, handled with gentle care. A real treat, to enjoy this rarity!

Vintage Champagne doesn't get better. Thanks Olivier Krug for the time and the great wine! Too bad their are not more bottles to go around.
