Krug Clos du Mesnil 2004 Champagne
At first glance, a vibrant brightness and an intense golden color reminiscent of ripe wheat.
On the nose, expressive aromas of toffee apple, caramel, ripe citrus and lightly roasted nuts.
On the palate, it opens with surprising generosity and breadth. Initial hints of brown sugar, candied ginger and pecans give way to citrus notes that explode into a burst of freshness enhanced by a very long and elegant finish
The year 2004 required patience with a cool winter and a frosty spring, keeping temperatures in Champagne cool for an exceptionally long time. May it bring warmth to the region, and toward the end of summer, the grapes ripen perfectly in the bright sunshine.
Krug Clos du Mesnil 2004 enhances the sparkling purity of a gated plot in the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, a single grape variety, Chardonnay, and a single year, 2004.
Combining exceptional purity and freshness with tension, vivacity and great balance, today Krug Clos du Mesnil 2004 reveals a precise signature and surprising grace.
Maison Krug chooses to create Krug Clos du Mesnil only in the years that provide the ideal conditions for the full potential of this walled plot of Chardonnay grapes to be revealed. Protected by stone walls since 1698, the 1.84-hectare Clos du Mesnil vineyard is located in the heart of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of Champagne’s most prized Chardonnay villages.
