Joseph Krug founded the house after a spell working at Jacquesson in 1842. The house is soley focussed on quality, ruthless selecton of vines and parcels of wines. All wines are fermented in small, old barriques, little to no malolactic is used and all go through a very slow second fermentation. The youngest wines undergo between five and seven years lees contact and can be made up of up to fifteen different vintages. This is a prestige cuvee house of the highest quality.
Krug Clos Mesnil 1995
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. – From Krug.com
