The House of Krug invites you to discover the intensity, individuality and purity of Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1995: from a single plot, a single grape variety – Pinot Noir – and the harvest of the year 1995.

Clos d’Ambonnay is a tiny walled plot of 0.68 hectares located in the heart of Ambonnay, one of the most distinguished villages for Pinot Noir grapes in Champagne and the main source of Pinot Noir for the House since its earliest years.

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1995 is the first Champagne of this exceptional terroir ever created.

A talk with Julie Cavil

Krug Cellar Master

The year 1995 in the village of Ambonnay had a mild, slightly rainy winter with two short periods of frost in January and March that had minimal impact on the vines. The spring was sunny and warm with a long period of heat from late June until the end of harvest. The wines of the year exhibited great fruit expression and freshness. A promise of generosity, elegance and length.
The House chose to reveal Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1995 because the circumstances of the year gave a Champagne that fully expressed the potential of this walled plot.

Tasting notes

Intense gold with slight hints of violet, recalling its Pinot Noir origins.
The bouquet boasts remarkable complexity and intensity; it is opulently creamy with a hint of hazelnut and brioche along with papaya jam and mango aromas while also distinctive and earthy. On the palate, this Champagne is dense and intense with extraordinary freshness and wonderful length.

I still remember my first glass of Krug, being overwhelmed by a complexity I did not expect from a Champagne. It was one big crescendo, a feast of highlights, the big finale of a huge fireworks display.

STORING AND SERVING

The Right Temperature

The House of Krug recommends that its Champagnes be served between 9°C and 12°C, as colder temperatures limit the expression of their flavours and aromas.

The Right Glass

In 2011 the House of Krug partnered with renowned crystal maker, Riedel, to design a glass that would most generously reveal the fullness of flavours and aromas of Krug Grande Cuvée.

The Influence of Time

Krug offers only prestige Champagnes, the most important characteristic of which is that they will gain beautifully with the passage of time.
