Blend and Origin
Krug Vintage 2000
This vintage comprises 42% pinot noir, which provides power, 43% aromatic and expressive chardonnay, and 15% generous meunier. The year 2000 was extreme – hot, rainy and stormy, but the harvest was bountiful and the grapes were astoundingly rich, creating a vintage that combines the complexity and generosity of a very exciting year.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Sweet, sour and spicy will match this champagne’s intensity
This vintage will complement the bold flavours of contemporary sweet and sour dishes such as caramelised scallops and pineapple.
A dark poultry such as pigeon or duck, served with a confit of vegetables and a spicy sauce or rich gravy, is a perfect pairing.
This champagne is excellent with desserts featuring roasted fruits such as bananas or peaches.
