Description & Technical Information
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 0.68-hectare site was purchased in 1994 and the first vintage was produced in 1995. Kept an absolute secret until its release in 2007, Olivier revealed: "We even kept it a secret from Moët for some years!" Clos d'Ambonnay is an extremely rare and exclusive champagne produced only in the very best vintages. Just 4,760 bottles of Clos d'Ambonnay were produced in 1998, each individually numbered.

Krug ID: 111002 | Each bottle of Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 1998 has a Krug ID on the back label which enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. You can do so using the smartphone App or on the Krug website.

Weather: The 1998 vintage was a classic year full of contrasts, typical in Champagne, with an extremely hot month of August followed by some heavy rains. In the case of Ambonnay, this resulted in astoundingly rich, delicious grapes that hinted at the wonderful potential of Krug’s 1998 Clos d'Ambonnay wines from the very first tasting sessions.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Clos d'Ambonnay
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Ageing: 12 years on the lees

Tasting Note: An intense golden colour with hints of red tones. Amazing aromas of milky caramel, blackcurrant, red fruit jam and jellied fruits. On the palate, there are rich notes of wild fruits, brioche and redcurrant enhanced by an elegant long finish. At nearly twenty years of age, it is still shockingly fresh and lively with an elegant purity and immense power.

Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 1998 can also be purchased in a Limited Edition bottle signed by Olivier Krug and presented in a beautifully crafted and branded wooden box (as shown in the bottom left picture).
