From one of the most famous villages of Champagne, this exceptional cuvée, combining richness and complexity, boasts all its potential, as often with Krug, after a ageing, to pair with finedishes (fish or crustaceans). More info
Clos du Mesnil is a historic vineyard, nestled in the heart of the village of Mesnil-sur-Oger, and full wall-enclosed since 1698. East-southeast, sloping, it is planted exclusively with Chardonnay over 1,84ha. Bought by Krug in 1971, renovated by patiently turning plots, this vineyard produces an exceptional champagne. Displaying a beautiful pale yellow colour, it offers aromas which differ in complex notes of spices, hazelnut, butter, and candied fruit. This exceptional wine that combines richness and complexity, has a good ageing potential.
When Johann-Joseph Krug founded Maison Krug in 1843, he dreamed of attaching his name to a unique champagne. He set one simple rule – never cut corners. Today, six generations later, he would be proud of the stubborn perfectionism that still rules the creation and development of his champagne. Krug is one of the few champagne houses to only produce prestige cuvées. The worldwide reputation of this outstanding champagne is based on a rare expertise that combines patience with excellence. The rigorous selection process begins with choosing the three varieties that will go into the complex blends created at Krug. Krug is also the only top brand to fully ferment it champagnes in small oak barrels. It is this delicate process that creates champagnes with intense aromas and rich and complex tastes. Finally, as a model case in Champagne, Krug ages its wines for a minimum of 6 to 8 years. The reward for this is exceptional maturity and longevity. Krug champagnes are one-of-a-kind, standing out above all others and at the peak of what champagne can be.
