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 13,278 bottles and 500 magnums of Clos du Mesnil were produced in 2002, each individually numbered.

Krug ID: 115024 | Each bottle of Krug Clos du Mesnil 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 year 2002 offered a clement and generous climate, consistently warm, relatively dry, granting ideal conditions for grape maturation. As the grapes arrived at the press, they were in excellent and robust health. Clos du Mesnil’s harvest took place between the 15th and 17th of September and gave birth to fruity, energetic, delicate and well-balanced wines. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last two decades.

Tasting Note: The 2002 vintage needs no introduction, but this expression is in a league of its own. Astounding powerful, its like a fruit salad bowl with hints of vanilla. Elegant and stunning all at once, it has a beautifully rich mouth-feel that lingers on and on. Great acidity and years of potential. Rich, elegant, precise and pure, this is just wow.
