Krug Clos d’Ambonnay celebrates with the rarest of Champagnes the unique character of a particular Pinot Noir grape that of a small, walled, 0.68-hectare plot from the heart of Ambonnay, one of the most distinguished villages for this grape variety in Champagne, and one which has played a very special role in the life of the House of Krug. Krug Clos d’Ambonnay reveals a personality with significant presence, great substance and an amazing length and finesse.
Krug Clos d´Ambonnay 2000 is the expression of a unique walled plot of Pinot Noir harvested in 2000.
2000 was once hot, rainy and stormy. The harvest at Krug’s Clos d’Ambonnay took place in one day on September 29th; it was superbly bountiful with astoundingly rich Pinot Noir grapes. The House of Krug chose to reveal Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 2000 because, from the very first tastings, the Pinot Noir grapes harvested glowed with a rare generosity and beauty; they revealed a delightful, balanced character without any excess aromatic intensity. The year 2000 thus succeeded in expressing the full potential of this walled plot with true beauty and poise.
