KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 2002 EXALTS THE CRISP PURITY OF A SINGLE WALLED PLOT OF VINES (CLOS IN FRENCH) : KRUG’S CLOS DU MESNIL IN THE VILLAGE OF MESNIL-SUR-OGER, AND OF A SINGLE GRAPE VARIETY: CHARDONNAY, FROM ONE SINGLE YEAR : 2002.
Winemaker Notes :
At first sight, a bright and luminous golden colour of ripe wheat
On the nose, aromas of citrus fruits, white pepper and spices, slightly grilled nuts and brioche
On the palate, it is precise, pure and fresh with tension, vivacity and great balance
Notes of peach, orange, citrus fruit and liquorice are all enhanced by a very long finish
Wine Spectator , 98 pts
A lovely, lacy Champagne, with ripe apricot, fennel seed and espresso aromas. This caresses the palate with a finely detailed mousse and expansive flavors of pineapple pâte de fruit, toasted brioche, fleur de sel and grated ginger. Long and chalky on the finish, this is a prima ballerina, showing power cloaked in grace. Disgorged winter 2015. Drink now through 2032..”
