At first sight, a light, golden mineral hue.
▪ On the nose, notes of citrus, lightly toasted aromas, orange madeleine and the menthol signature of this small plot.
▪ On the palate, citrus in all its forms and grapefruit skin give way to ripe and candied citrus flavours and notes of barley sugar, with a delightful bitterness. This champagne is elegant and chiselled, all the while silky and generous.
We invite you to discover the Soloist, the expression of the extreme purity of Krug Clos du Mesnil: from a single plot – Clos du Mesnil – a single grape variety – Chardonnay – and the harvest of a single year – 2008. This 1.84-hectare (4.5-acre) vineyard has been protected by walls since 1698. The vineyard is located in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most iconic villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region.
The year 2008 was one of Champagne’s coolest in 14 years, and also one of the region’s least sunny in almost half a century. Rainfall was normal throughout the growing season and the summer was dry, followed by a climatic lull prior to harvest.
▪ Due to temperatures without any hot peaks, in 2008, grape maturation was slow and steady.
▪ The harvest of the Clos du Mesnil took place on September 18th, 20th, and 21st of 2008 and afforded grapes with intense freshness and elegant expression that made for beautifully structured wines.
