Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne Vintage Flaschengärung 2002


Lobenberg: Einer der besten jemals probierten jungen Champagner, an Länge wohl kaum zu schlagen. Hat alles, was man von einem großen Champagner erwartet und zeigt dies auch. Ein Meisterwerk an Präzision und Intensität. 96-98/100


Suckling über: Champagne Vintage Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: The much-anticipated 2002 has impeccable detail and depth with a lot of chalky, stony and flinty elements on the nose as well as a very fresh edge. The nose is very complex and wound up tight but presents itself as very integrated and compressed. There are aromas of lemon rind, lime juice and a lime custard all at once, complemented in turn by a super-restrained hazelnut-like edge. Undertones of brown mushrooms, chalky minerals and lemon leaf. The palate has a core of sizzlingly intense, concentrated chardonnay framed whitin a powerful phenolic structure that will underpin the future of this Champagne. Flawlessly fresh and as perfect as it gets. Give this time as it needs to settle: best from 2020 and then for another decade beyond. 100/100,


Decanter über: Champagne Vintage Flaschengärung

-- Decanter: The Krug 2002 vintage Champagne is a mix of bright Welsh gold and pale green lights and has a perfect flow of tiny bubbles. What aromatics – spring flowers from well-sited Pinot Meunier, and exoticism in the Chardonnay. The beating heart of the wine is powerful, poised and very complex Pinot Noir, still biding its time to majestically unfold. Magnificent. 98/100


Jancis Robinson über: Champagne Vintage Flaschengärung

-- Jancis Robinson: Great combination of freshness and density. Explosively powerful. Un-ignorable. Kerpow! Pungent. 19,5/20


Weinwelt über: Champagne Vintage Flaschengärung

-- Weinwelt: Satte, konzentrierte Zitrusfrüchte, Kumquat, dazu sehr dunkle Würze, Lakritz, Unterholz, Zedernholz, etwas Tabak, sehr dicht, feine würzige Art, griffige, aber sehr dezente Gerbstoffe, geballte salzige Mineralität, Exktraktsüße, aber wunderbar fest im Finale, karamellisierte Nüsse. 97/100

Winespectator über: Champagne Vintage Flaschengärung

-- Winespectator: Beautifully aromatic, this leads with aromas of ground clove, coffee liqueur and mandarin orange peel, adding crystallized honey, dried cherry, acacia blossom and toasted brioche notes on the expansive palate. Rich in flavor and broad in structure, with verve driving this through to the long, satiny finish. Drink now through 2027. 96/100
