Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000
THE PURITY OF CHARDONNAY IN 2000

Krug Clos du Mesnil, a very rare Champagne, showcases the unique character of a single plot of Chardonnay, harvested in 2000. The 1.84-hectare vineyard overlooked by the village church has been protected by walls since 1698. It is located in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most iconic villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region.

This magnum spent at least 13 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in summer 2013.

As it is a magnum, we let it rest for even longer, waiting until the Champagne is ready to be enjoyed.

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 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, 2000.

The growing season of 1999-2000 was one of heightened drama. A violent tornado struck at the end of December, followed by a late budding due to spring rains. In midsummer, a brutal hailstorm savaged the region.

During this episode, a large number of the plots in the iconic village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger were devastated, but the Clos du Mesnil, situated in the heart of the village and protected on all sides by its historic walls, resisted the tempest better than many others. Thankfully summer came to an end under more clement conditions, although the storm clouds were never far away. The robust, generous and beautifully ripened Chardonnay grapes were harvested on 24th and 25th September. Upon tasting, the wines of the year from the Clos du Mesnil revealed an opulent and elegant character.

Combining outstanding purity and freshness with tension, vivacity and great balance, today Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 reveals a precise signature and a striking grace.

The composition of Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 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

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2000 has tones of luminous, very light gold with hints of green.
You will be seduced by aromas of ripe apple, toffee, barley sugar, short crust pastry, raisins, honey, acacia and citrus fruits. In the palate you will find indulgent flavours of peaches and white blossoms, gingerbread, honey and orange zest.

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.

"Silky and fine like featherweight cashmere, this vibrant blanc de blanc is nonetheless laden with ample, expressive flavors. Rich hints of XO cognac and coffee liqueur underscore bergamot and glazed apricot fruit, while smoky minerality, spun honey, grilled nut and exotic spices impart further complexity and linger on the lasting finish." – AN

Wine Spectator 2015
Note: 97/100

A blend of chalk and french butter, slightly lemony, with a salinity that splendidly supports the whole, a complete success.

Krug Clos du Mesnil is an invitation to a more baroque and precise music.

This champagne being composed of a single wine, it seems natural that it would be played by one instrument.

This is why I think that my interpretation of Scarletti’s A Major Sonata is a creation that goes perfectly with Krug Clos du Mesnil.
