Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 2002

The intensity of a single plot of Pinot Noir in 2002

The House of Krug invites you to discover the intensity, individuality and purity of Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 2002: from a single plot, a single grape variety – Pinot Noir – and the harvest of the year 2002.

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 2002 is the sixth Champagne from this unique plot of Pinot Noir. The first was created with the harvest of 1995.

This individually numbered bottle spent at least 14 years in Krug's cellars further developing its depth and complexity. After regular tasting and appraisal, it received its cork as Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 2002 in autumn 2015.

The climate of 2002 was generous, consistently mild and relatively dry. The high point of this exceptionally clement year was its long summer of warm days and cool nights that offered the ideal conditions for grape maturation.
After 14 years in Krug's cellars, it reveals an extraordinary finesse.
The House of Krug’s unique craftsmanship has revealed a rare Champagne from a remarkable terroir, the Clos d’Ambonnay. This tiny walled plot of 0.68 hectares is 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 very earliest years.
House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 2002 because the year 2002, marked by the generosity of the harvest, succeeded in offering ideal conditions for beautiful grapes, with the promise of revealing the full potential of this walled plot.

Tasting notes

At first sight, a bright and luminous golden colour redolent of ripe wheat.
On the nose, aromas of gingerbread, candied orange peel and hints of hazelnut.
On the palate, the elegant structure reveals a tremendous fullness and intensity enhanced by a very long finish with a final hint of citrus fruits.

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

The Right Glass

The House of Krug has partnered with renowned crystal maker Riedel to design a glass that would most generously reveal the fullness of flavour and aromas of Krug Champagnes.

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.
