K&L Notes

Krug is an icon in Champagne, and their single-vineyard Clos du Mesnil is only produced in the very best years. This walled-in parcel of land in Mesnil-sur-Oger is a very small 1.85 acres in the heart of the village. The original wall was built in 1698, the same year the vineyard was planted. Tasting notes from the producer: "At first sight, a bright and luminous golden color 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 licorice are all enhanced by a very long finish. The year 2002 offered a clement and generous climate, consistently warm, relatively dry, granting ideal conditions for grape maturation. The rare beauty and singularity of the year’s grapes are conveyed by the generosity and aromas inherited from the clement circumstances of 2002, making this year an exceptional one. 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."

    On Monday, September 12, I had the rare opportunity to taste the wines of the “the Clos.” This wine had a wonderful nose of lemon meringue, toasted nuts and freshly whipped cream. On the palate, it is extremely unique with lemony zest, mandarin orange, kiwi and a little nutmeg. The finish is super, super clean with lime fruit and chalky notes. Two hours later, it was all about toasted nuts and citrus! So, very, very Krug.
