Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 1998

The intensity of a private plot of Pinot Noir in 1998

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay celebrates, with the rarest of Champagnes, the unique character of a particular Pinot Noir grape. They are harvested in a tiny walled 0.68-hectare plot in the heart of Ambonnay, one of the most distinguished villages for this grape variety in Champagne, and one which has played a very special role in the life of the House of Krug.

Tasting notes

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 has intense golden colour with hints of red tones.
Amazing aromas of milky caramel, barley sugar, toasted bread, blackcurrant, red fruit jam and jellied fruits. In the palate you may find very rich notes of wild fruits, tarte tatin, brioche, redcurrant and liquorice enhanced by an elegant long finish.

KRUG CELLAR MASTER, WINEMAKER

Black and White Portrait of Eric Lebel With Krug Grande Cuvee
1998 was a classic year, full of contrasts, typical in Champagne with an extremely hot month of August followed by some heavy rains. In the case of Ambonnay, this resulted in astoundingly rich, delicious grapes that hinted at the wonderful potential of 1998 Krug’s Clos d'Ambonnay wines from the very first tasting sessions.

The House of Krug chose to reveal Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 because the year 1998 succeeded in fully expressing the potential of this tiny small walled plot.

  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
