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 spent at least 10 years in Krug's cellars, receiving its cork in autumn 2013.

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.
Eric Lebel

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.
