Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003

Krug-Clos-de-Mesnil-2003LVMH-owned Champagne house Krug has launched the 2003 vintage of its single vineyard brut blanc de blancs, Clos du Mesnil. Just 8,671 bottles and 659 magnums of Clos du Mesnil will go on sale in Krug’s key export markets around the world, with the release being staggered over two years.

“Clos du Mesnil is the purest expression of Chardonnay and could be said to be the first grower Champagne. I always joke that it’s the easiest Krug to make as it’s a solo act,” Olivier Krug said at the London launch. “Japan is our biggest market for Clos du Mesnil; they view it as a diamond,” he added. Krug admitted that the 2003 vintage of Clos du Mesnil doesn’t have the “vivacity” of either the 1996 or the 2000 vintages. “Given the heat of the vintage, people are surprised that we even made a 2003, but the big surprise is the freshness. The terroir really comes through, it’s still very young to be honest but there’s a flintiness and a creaminess to it,” he said.
