Product Description

Part of the fascination, the allure, the siren call of Clos du Mesnil is the juxtaposition of the Krug style with the specificity of this wine. Krug has built their immense reputation on their skills and affinity for blending, yet the Clos du Mesnil is the antithesis of that philosophy. This is singular Champagne in every way: single-vineyard, single-varietal (blanc de blancs), single-vintage Krug. Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 exalts the individuality, purity and intensity of a single walled plot of vines Krug’s Clos du Mesnil in the village of Mesnil-sur-Oger and of a single grape variety: Chardonnay, all from a single year 2003. The rare beauty and singularity of the year’s grapes are conveyed by the power and aromas inherited from the very particular circumstances of 2003, which made this year so memorable and exceptional. With its unique savoir-faire, Krug reveals the extraordinary elegance of the Chardonnay of this single plot, making of Krug Clos du Mesnil one of the most prestigious Champagnes. Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 has tones of luminous, very light gold with hints of green. You will be seduced by aromas of ripe apple, toffee, barley sugar, short crust pastry, raisins, honey, acacia and citrus fruits. In the palate you will find indulgent flavors of peaches and white blossoms, gingerbread, honey and orange zest. Like all Krug Champagnes, Krug Clos du Mesnil ages beautifully and reveals the exquisite indulgence of grapes from this one plot in this single year, which have now spent just over a decade in the cellars thus gaining finesse and elegance. Krug Clos du Mesnil has an expansive, generous personality enhanced by the finish which powers through with extreme precision. This is a Champagne without rivals. It's that simple.
