KRUG Clos du Mesnil Blanc de Blancs, Champagne 1990

Krug Clos du Mesnil is a single-vintage, single-vineyard wine, one of two in the Krug portfolio. It is a blanc-de-blancs (100% Chardonnay) and is considered to be among the finest expressions of this Champagne style. Clos du Mesnil is a 1.84ha walled vineyard (clos) in the centre of the Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the greatest all-Chardonnay villages of the Côte des Blancs It was included in a larger vineyard purchase made by Remi and Henri Krug in 1979. Krug stresses that the wall itself (built in 1698), plus the unusual location in the centre of the village, create a unique micro-climate that justifies the decision to make what was the first single-site wine in Krug’s history.

Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
