Switching it up today with a 2002 Champagne Blend from *surprise, surprise* Champagne, France! A 750 mL bottle from the Krug Winery, this is the 2002 Krug Clos du Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Champagne, and it comes in a specialized wood box. It is a sparkling wine.
The 2002 Krug received a rating of 98 from Wine Spectator, and comes with an overall average critic score of 96/100. The region it hails from is the Champagne Blanc de Blancs in Champagne, France. Ultimately the grapes used are Chardonnay and the wine style is a complex, yet traditional champagne.
12% alcohol-by-volume and it pairs very well with Shellfish, specifically Crab and Lobster. Great length and the purity is amazing. Comes fresh with the scents of lemon, apricot, espresso, pineapple grapefruit, honey, flowers, peach, mango with an ultra-fine texture. Very mineral-like taste with a silky and chalk-like finish. Very acidic but also balanced.
