Wine Description

Krug Clos du Mesnil, a very rare Champagne, showcases the unique character of a single plot of Chardonnay, harvested in 1998. The 1.84-hectare vineyard overlooked by the village church has been protected by walls since 1698. It is located in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most iconic villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region. Krug’s savoir-faire has successfully revealed the intense and calm purity, chiselled structure and persistent aromas of this single walled plot in the year 1998, enhanced by over ten years in the cellar, thus gaining finesse and elegance.
