“Krug’s beautifully citrus colored 2002 Blanc de Blancs Brut Clos du Mesnil (ID 415068 – disgorged IV/2015) shows a deep, complex, very clear and precise if not etherial bouquet with citrus aromas intertwined with chalk and noble brioche notes in the background. Pure, profound and vibrantly fresh on the palate, this is a straight, athletic, very intense and expressive yet highly elegant and finessed Clos du Mesnil with a unique fresh fruit character! The 2002 reveals a great mineral structure and chalky texture on the palate. The highly complex, energetic finish reveals bracing freshness and vitality as well as the charm and creaminess from the vinification in barrels and possibly the dosage wine that seems to boost the Krug style. While terroir wine is the result of hands-off winemaking, Krug’s Clos du Mesnil is perhaps a very particular Krug Champagne—it has great quality, style and complexity that is the result of the winemaking and the addition of the dosage wine. How the Clos du Mesnil would taste if farmed biodynamically, picked later and dosed with nothing but itself is a pointless question, but it hasn’t left my mind since I tasted the paradoxical 2002, which is terribly fresh on one hand and also has this unique Krug reserve style. Notabene: This doesn’t include the hypothesis that the wine could be any better. It would just be different and surely less “Krug,” which is not what we really want, do we? Tasted April 2018.” – Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate, June 2018

KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 2002

THE PURITY OF A SINGLE PLOT OF CHARDONNAY IN 2002

KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL IN THE WORLD OF KRUG:

The meticulous savoir-faire of the House of Krug has revealed two exceptional and rare Champagnes from two of the greatest terroirs in the Champagne region: Krug Clos du Mesnil and Krug Clos d’Ambonnay. Each expresses the individuality, purity and intensity of a single walled plot of vines, a single grape variety and a single year. They are both outstanding soloists.

KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 2002 IS UNIQUE:

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 is the expression of a unique plot of Chardonnay harvested in the year 2002. The rare beauty and singularity of the year’s grapes are conveyed by the generosity of flavours and aromas inherited from the clement circumstances of 2002, making this year an exceptional one:

  • The single walled plot of Krug’s Clos du Mesnil lies in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most renowned villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region.
  • This small plot of merely 1.84 hectare makes Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 extremely rare.
  • Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 comes after 13 years in the cellars and will continue to gain with the passage of time, evidence that patience is the constant ally of all Krug Champagnes.

THE YEAR 2002 IN THE VILLAGE OF MESNILSUR-OGER:

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.

KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 2002 IN ESSENCE:

The House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 because, the year 2002, marked by the generosity of the yields, succeeded in offering ideal conditions for the maturation of beautiful grapes, with the promise of revealing the full potential of this walled plot. It exalts the crisp purity of a single 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. After 13 years in Krug’s cellars, it reveals a precise signature and a striking grace.
