Krug

Overlooked as one of the jewels of the Champagne region, embodies the art and passion of creating exceptional Champagnes for over 170 years.

Founded in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug, this family-run house has earned a legendary reputation for its relentless pursuit of excellence.

The story is one of dedication to the art of Champagne. Johann-Joseph Krug, originally from Mainz, Germany, moved to Reims, France, to pursue his dream of creating an exceptional Champagne. He founded his own house, and since then, six generations have succeeded each other at the head of the company, each bringing their unique expertise.

The Domaine is located in Reims, in the heart of the Champagne, and its vineyards cover around 20 hectares. What sets the house apart is its commitment to creating prestigious Champagnes using artisanal winemaking methods and an uncompromising approach to quality. The vineyards are located in the region's Grands Crus, providing grapes of the highest quality for the production of their cuvées.

In contrast to many Champagne houses that focus on the consistency of one cuvée style, Krug is famous for its bold blending of different harvest years and grape varieties. Each cuvée is crafted from over 120 wines from Réserve, giving each bottle exceptional complexity and richness.

Description Krug Clos du Mesnil 2008.

Clos du Mesnil comes from a single parcel of 1.84 hectares, surrounded by protective walls since 1698. The vines are located in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most emblematic Chardonnay villages on the Côte des blancs. 

2008 was one of the coldest years in 14 years, favoring slow, steady ripening of the grapes. Thanks to these climatic conditions, the harvest produced grapes of intense freshness and elegant expression, giving rise to beautifully structured wines. 

"This is a powerful, sensual and intense Blanc de blancs, with lots of chalk, lemon, apricot stone, walnut, flint, cookie, toast, white grapefruit and quince. Lively, closed and structured. Its bubbles are tight, with pronounced acidity. Very long and persistent." 

James Suckling - 2022  Rating 99/100 

The elegant minerality of this wine combined with tangy notes makes it ideal for pairing with langoustine carpaccio, scallops marinated in dill or a lobster salad with citrus.
