Description & Technical Information
-
Clos du Mesnil is the most famous vineyard in all of Champagne and one of the finest Chardonnay sites outside the Grand Cru of Burgundy itself. In the heart of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, the vines were planted and the protective wall built in 1698. Although Krug purchased the plot in 1971, it wasn't until the outstanding 1979 harvest that Olivier's father suggested they make a single wine: from one grape, one year and one little garden. Based on pure chalk, this tiny 1.84-hectare east-facing plot achieves less ripeness than some of Le Mesnil's south-facing slopes, making it all the more suited to Krug's long-ageing style. Clos du Mesnil is an extremely rare and exclusive champagne produced only in the very best vintages. Just 11,390 bottles of Clos du Mesnil were produced in 2000, each individually numbered.

Krug ID: 315056 | Each bottle of Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 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: Before the harvest, a hailstorm devastated a large part of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Situated in the heart of the village, Krug’s Clos du Mesnil resisted better than the other plots as its vines are protected by the surrounding walls and village. Delicious, generous, ripe grapes survived the storm to provide an opulent and elegant Chardonnay.

Tasting Note: The colour is very light gold with hints of green. This has aromas of ripe apple, toffee, raisins and honey. The palate is extremely complex with indulgent flavours of peaches, gingerbread and truffles. Krug calls Clos du Mesnil 2000 'the miracle wine' after a hailstorm destroyed half the vineyard: the fruit that survived escaped with remarkable endurance and is still fresh at 15 years of age.

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 is presented in a beautifully branded wooden gift box (as shown in the bottom left picture).
