Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003
The purity of a single plot of Chardonnay in 2003

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 exalts the crisp purity of a single walled plot of vines (Clos in French): Krug’s Clos du Mesnil in the village of Mesnil-sur-Oger, and of a single grape variety: Chardonnay, all from a single year: 2003.

Serious Portrait of Eric Lebel
This bottle left the Krug cellars to receive its cork in summer 2014. 

This is the last step after over 11 years of ageing in the cellars gaining finesse and elegance.

As it is a magnum we wait even longer, until the Champagne is ready to be fully enjoyed.

2003 stands out for its dramatic climate of extremes: a very dry winter and spring with an early flowering period followed by a very warm summer. The rare beauty and singularity of the year’s grapes are expressed by the power and aromas inherited from the very particular circumstances of 2003, making this year an exceptional one.

The House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 because, from the very first tastings, the

Chardonnay grapes of the 2003 harvest already revealed a delightful, expressive and balanced character without any excess aromatic intensity. 

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 exalts the crisp purity of a single walled plot of vines: Krug’s Clos du Mesnil in the village of Mesnil-sur-Oger, and of a single grape variety: Chardonnay, all from a single year: 2003.

It reveals a precise signature and a striking grace, after resting in the cellar for over ten years.

Tasting notes

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 has tones of luminous yellow gold colour which shimmers with brightness.

You will be seduced by aromas of praline, hazelnuts, ginger and spices. In the palate you will find strong flavors of honey, quince and candied citrus fruit, with a long and slightly lemony 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.

"Incredibly fresh and vibrant, this stunning Champagne weaves a tightly knit skein of ripe pear and tangy yellow plum fruit flavors together, with accent of rich pastry cream, toasted brioche, elderflower, ground cardamom and coffee liqueur. Shows a beautiful texture. A thread of salinity winds through to the lasting finish." – AN

Krug Clos du Mesnil is very sharp, transporting you straight to the fruit. Thelonious Monk does the same thing. He is a composer who came from off-track ways, very direct, very sharp, very precise. He manages to bring you in, drawn you into the music and stays long in your mind.
