Unique to the House of Krug, every Krug Vintage is crafted to be different, to reveal the expression of a particular year. A year with character, a year with a special story to tell in a way that Krug alone can relate. To narrate this story, Krug has blended very expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by a stay of over ten years in the cellars. Krug Vintage is the story of a year as seen by Krug; there are as many stories as there are Krug Vintages.

Winery Tasting Notes
At first sight, a subtle yellow gold colour highlighting a reserved finesse.
On the nose; there are notes of citrus, plum, liquid honey and brioche.
On the palate; fresh summer fruits, surprising red grapefruit along with candied peel, roast chestnut and caramelized apple tart.
Krug 2003 can be enjoyed with dishes involving quince and citrus fruits, such as veal, lamb and quince tagine, fine fish and/or shellfish with citrus-based sauces, oysters au gratin. Recipes with spices, cinnamon, curry are good options and for dessert; a nicely prepared bread pudding with redcurrant coulis or citrus gratin.
