Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 2000 Champagne

More vintages: 1996, 1998Just five years after Joseph Krug founded the Champagne House in 1843, he documented his great vision for Krug. In his notebook, he revealed the principles of creating a champagne of great richness and yet great elegance, of selecting only the finest elements from the greatest terroirs, rejecting mediocre fruit and making both a non-vintage and a vintage cuvťe (revolutionary at the time). Discovered by Olivier Krug just four years ago, the ideals in this notebook and Krug's resolute commitment to them, has secured its position as the most luxurious and exclusive of all champagnes.

In 1991, just two years after Olivier joined Krug, a clos surrounded by a protective wall since 1766 was found in Ambonnay, Krug's favourite village and largest source of Pinot Noir. The tiny site of 0.68 hectares was purchased in 1994, and the first vintage was produced in 1995. Kept an absolute secret until its release in 2007, Olivier reveals, "We even kept it a secret from MoŽt for some years!" Krug's savoir-faire has successfully revealed the fullness and intensity of grapes from this single plot in the year 2000, enhanced by over 12 years in the cellars gaining finesse and elegance. Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 2000 celebrates, with the rarest of champagnes, the unique character of a particular Pinot Noir grape.

2000 was a hot year for Champagne and the single walled vineyard thrived under the conditions, producing a very ripe Pinot Noir grape.

Clos díAmbonnay 2000 has a particularly luminous straw-gold colour with a fine stream of bubbles throughout. It has aromas are full of brioche, caramel and spices, leading to a palate rife with a freshness combined with flavours of caramel and hints of lemon. This latest release of Clos díAmbonnay has fulfilled the potential of the grapes from the harvest and is exceptional in taste.

“ID 413063. Bottle number 1008 disgorged in 2013. When this was made, it was still an experiment. The 1995 was the first vintage but it had still not been released. This 2000 was released in early 2015.
Deep gold. Very deep-flavoured - chestnuts? - on the nose. Extremely persistent. Massive dimension; the bubbles almost seemed to struggle to escape. Still remarkably fresh with masses of aromatic development. Big, bold and bright.”
