Krug Clos du Mesnil 1998 exalts the crisp purity of Chardonnay from one of the finest terroirs in the region – a single walled plot of vines, Clos du Mesnil – from a single year, 1998.
The legendary vineyard has been protected by stone walls since 1698 and is hidden within the heart of one of the most celebrated villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Its privileged location and small size of 1.84 hectares (4.25 acres), make Krug Clos du Mesnil 1998 a rare gem.
This individually numbered bottle spent at least 9 years in Krug's cellars further developing its depth and complexity. After regular tasting and appraisal, it received its cork as Krug Clos du Mesnil 1998 in summer 2007.
