James Suckling 95 pts: "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."
Vinous 94 pts: "Soft, supple and delicate in the glass, the 2003 Vintage is super expressive today. Smoke, brioche, apple tart and spice notes flesh out in a resonant, impeccably layered Champagne loaded with personality. I can't think of a young Krug Champagne that delivers this much pure pleasure at such a young stage in its life. The 2003 has developed nicely since I last tasted it about six months ago. This is class personified."
