About the Brand

The potential for a Krug vintage wine is identified during the blending of Grande Cuvée, and only after the blend has been secured and all of the reserves earmarked, with the wines displaying the most pronounced character of the vintage becoming the vintage wine. Krug decided to create a vintage for this particular year and named it "Vivacité Solaire" (Vivacious Radiance). The 2003 vintage was a year of many circumstances: dry winter and spring, very premature blooming, two serious frosts and ending with a summer of scorching heat. With small yields, healthy grapes, extremely varied levels of maturity, over and under-ripeness; it was Krug's respect of the individual expression of every plot that produced surprisingly fresh, aromatic and balanced wines .
