Product details

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 harvest of the Clos du Mesnil took place on September 18th, 20th, and 21st of 2008 and afforded grapes with intense freshness and elegantexpression that made for beautifully structured wines. The House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos du Mesnil 2008 because the year 2008 succeeded in offering ideal conditions for the maturation of beautiful grapes, with the promise of revealing the full potential of this walled plot.

Tasting notes

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.

MAISON KRUG

The House was established in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, as well as building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years allowed Joseph Krug to fulfill his dream. With a very original approach to Champagne making, he decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the most generous expression of Champagne, every year. Thus, he founded a House in which all Champagnes are of the same level of distinction. Six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated this dream, enriching the founder’s vision and savoir-faire.
