Portrait of Eric Lebel
This bottle spent at least 12 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in summer 2015.

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 exalts the crisp purity of a walled plot in the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, of a single grape variety, Chardonnay, and a single year, 2003.

A year of such extremes as 2003 was unheard of in living memory. After an early bud break, the region was hit by two extreme frosts. The summer that followed was a record-breaker, with an average temperature in August of 28.5°C - a staggering ten degrees above the norm.

The harvest in Champagne began on 23rd August, making it the earliest since 1822. That very day, Krug harvested the Clos du Mesnil, ensuring that the grapes - glowing with a rare health and beauty - expressed the ideal balance of maturity and freshness.

From the first tastings, the wines revealed an expressive character without excessive aromatic intensity. Combining outstanding purity and freshness with tension, vivacity and great balance, today Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 reveals a precise signature and a striking grace.

The composition of Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 is 100% Chardonnay.

The House of Krug chooses to create Krug Clos du Mesnil only in 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 lies in the heart of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most prized Chardonnay villages in Champagne.

Tasting notes

At first sight a lovely bright golden colour.

A very charismatic fresh nose, promise of natural intensity and elegance with strong presence of fruits, fruits of all types. A diverse bouquet of orange aromas with some notes of liquorice and light chocolate biscuit can be enjoyed.

On the palate, astonishing, balanced and delicate with significant fresh, tropical, wild and crystalised fruits. It is a hymn to fruit: red, white and citrus fruit with notes of cassis, chocolate, candied-orange peel, cocoa beans, honey with hints of smoke and toast enhanced by a vibrant, persistent long finish.

Storing & serving

  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 1
    The richness of your Krug Champagne is fully revealed between 9°C and 12°C (49°F - 54°F). Serving your bottle too cold would refrain the aromas’expression.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 2
    Krug has created The Joseph, a unique crystal glass whose shape enables the bubbles to reach their optimal expression and allows the discovery of the incredible bouquet of aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 3
    If you do not have The Joseph glass, you may prefer a white Burgundy glass to a flute, to enable the expression of Krug Champagne’s flavors and aromas.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 4
    As a Prestige Cuvée, Krug Champagnes age beautifully, the time revealing their richness and elegance.
  • Krug Grande Cuvée | 5
    Your Champagne should be stored in a wine cellar, or in a cool (between 10 to 15 °C - 50 to 59 °F) dry and away from light place, the exact conditions of Krug cellars.

" It is chock-full of acidity and life, is really muscular and (...) intellectual. (...) There is nothing in excess; a great example of the Krug art of assemblage. Very solid and concentrated but not heavy at all."

"To me, Symphony No.6, Tchaikovsky's 3rd movement, summons up the triumph of nature itself with its flamboyant, colorful orchestration: a kind of certitude, a tribute to creative genius. The pinnacle of expression."
