    Winemaker Notes
    Krug decided to create a vintage for this particular year and named it "Vivacite Solaire" (Vivacious Radiance) to relate an unexpected story of a hot year that surprised Krug with fruit, freshness, balance, expressiveness, vivacity and finesse, all at the same time. Krug 2003 is only possible thanks to the unique, detailed approach of the House of Krug to creating Champagnes.
    As with all Krug Champagnes, Krug 2003 will continue to gain with the passage of time.

     


    95: Wine Spectator
    Like taffeta in texture, this harmonious Champagne is finely honed and fresh. A wonderfully expressive version, with ample spice and graphite accents to the blackberry pate de fruit, coffee liqueur, dried apricot, singed orange peel and crystallized honey notes. Hard to stop sipping. Disgorged spring 2014. Drink now through 2028.

    95: James Suckling
    Looking very fresh and complex with plenty of richness and caramelized autolysis characters. Quite distinctively fragrant chardonnay notes of citrus, stone fruits and melon. It heads into spicy territory, very resolved and composed, with nutty, bready nuances and chalky notes. There?s trademark kaleidoscopic appeal. The palate has depth and composure with assertive acidity amid supple, fleshy chardonnay grapefruit and white-peach-sorbet flavors, plus lemon pith and nougat. Long, majestic, commanding, dark, nutty, red-grape flavors and phenolics drive the palate long. This suits the style and stacks up admirably.

    92: Wine & Spirits
    This 2003 offers beautiful ripeness in its flavors of apples and pears bursting out of their skins, yet maintains a sense of elegance in the context of what is often a rustic vintage. Krug captured enough cool to contrast the heat of the season, and though the wine is heavier than a classic vintage, it is rich and integrated, with complex, smoky flavors that last.
