Krug Soloist to Orchestra 2003
The Krug Soloist to Orchestra collection celebrates three different interpretations of the 2003 vintage in Champagne. Experience three unique expressions of an outstanding year: from the soloist Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 and the ensemble of Krug 2003 to the full orchestra of Krug Grande Cuvee.
Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003
At first sight, a vibrant luminosity and intense golden color redolent of ripe wheat.
On the nose, expressive aromas of toffee apple, caramel, ripe citrus fruits and lightly toasted nuts.
On the palate, it opens with astonishing generosity and breadth. Initial hints of brown sugar, candied ginger and pecan give way to notes of citrus fruits as it bursts into an explosion of freshness enhanced by a very long and elegant finish.
At first sight, the beautiful light golden color promises radiant freshness.
The nose begins with an expressive bouquet of ginger, candied citrus and quince, followed by richer notes evoking lemon meringue tart, plum and mirabelle.
On the palate, a very balanced Champagne with light notes of brioche and honey giving way to an array of fresh citrus, including oranges, lemons and mandarins, enhanced by a very elegant finish.
Krug Grande Cuvee
As you taste it, notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar and jellied fruits may take you by surprise. You may even taste hints of apples still on the tree, flowers in bloom, ripe and dried fruit, almonds, marzipan, gingerbread, sweet spices and even brioche and honey.
You may also notice its exceptional freshness in the mouth, with rich and tangy flavors of lemon and grapefruit enhanced by the subtlety of its fine and elegant bubbles. Krug Grande Cuvee can age beautifully.
