Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000
28th April 2015
The House of Krug has revealed two exceptional and rare Champagnes from two exceptional terroirs: Krug Clos du Mesnil and Krug Clos d’Ambonnay. Each expresses the individuality, purity and intensity of a single walled plot of vines, a single grape variety and a single year, in two of the greatest terroirs in the Champagne region.
Tones of luminous, very light gold with hints of green. Aromas of ripe apple, toffee, barley sugar, short crust pastry, raisins, honey, acacia and citrus fruits. Indulgent flavours of peaches and white blossoms, gingerbread, honey and orange zest.
Pairs well with fish and shellfish, poultry, langoustine carpaccio, scallops marinated in dill, lobster salad with citrus fruits, or grilled giant prawns.
What makes it unique?
Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 successfully reveals the calm purity of the iconic walled garden of Chardonnay in the year 2000. Krug’s Clos du Mesnil is amongst the very few rare plots that can give a great Champagne. The single walled vineyard of Krug’s Clos du Mesnil sits in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most renowned villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region. This small vineyard of just 1.84 hectare makes Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 very rare.
Like all Krug Champagnes, it can age beautifully.
