    A classic sole meunière

The Story

Krug Clos du Mesnil, a very rare Champagne, showcases the unique character of a single plot of Chardonnay, harvested in a single year. Our 1.84-hectare vineyard overlooked by the village church has been protected by walls since 1698. The vineyard is located in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most iconic villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region. Krug Clos du Mesnil has an expansive generous personality enhanced by the finish which powers through with extreme precision.

Vintage 2002

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.

Inside Information

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. 

 

Fish, shellfish and meat all pair perfectly with Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002. Create your own gastronomic adventure by pairing it with a lemon chicken tagine, a classic sole meunière or a scallop carpaccio with vanilla and kumquat.
