Krug Clos d'Ambonnay
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 4743 bottles and 240 magnums of Clos d'Ambonnay were produced in 2002, each individually numbered.

Krug ID: 415067 | Each bottle of Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 2002 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 climate of the year 2002 was generous, consistently mild and relatively dry. The high point of this exceptionally clement year was its long summer of warm days and cool nights that offered the ideal conditions for grapes maturation. The harvest at Krug’s Clos d’Ambonnay took place in one day on September 21st and afforded grapes in excellent condition and fine health.
