2002 boerl & kroff, brut
Why We're Buying
Boërl & Kroff Brut is a chef-d'oeuvre of Champagne. The wine only comes in magnum bottles and utilizes grapes from three Drappiers vineyards - Les Égrillés, Le Montouillet, and La Belle Haie. Currently, it ranks as the eighth-most expensive Champagne.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Most of the 2002 Brut from Boërl & Kroff was bottled in 750-milliliter bottles, so only 800 magnums were produced—a surprising decision, given the vintage, and one Sabaté now laments. Offering up a rich but youthful bouquet of waxy lemon rind, mandarin, warm biscuits, candied peel and honeycomb, this is a full-bodied, vinous Champagne with considerable structure and concentration, with its creamy and muscular profile exemplifying the house style. Long and powerful, it's a terrific wine that will delight admirers of old fashioned Champagne. 95+ Points
