So rich and yet so crisp. Flavor nuances spring up everywhere, all with a graceful touch. I don’t remember having a better champagne.

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)

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.
