Made from a tiny walled 0.68 hectare plot Clos d'Ambonnay is one of the rarest champagnes in the world. After the amazing results of Clos de Mesnil, the Krug family wanted to find a plot capable of showcasing Pinot Noir at the same extraordinary level. Remi, Henri and Olivier Krug searched for seven years around the village of Ambonnay, looking for an exceptional plot which might allow them to pay tribute to Pinot Noir, the grape variety closest to the House of Krug's heart, in the same way that Krug Clos du Mesnil glorified Chardonnay.
There is no doubt that with the tiny Clos d'Abonnay plot they have surpassed their wildest dreams. Tom Chadwick epitomises this champagnes perfectly: My first experience of Clos d'Ambonnay blew me away... This is a profound and intellectual wine which leaves you asking one question: how do I get my hands on some?... If you love champagne you have to have Clos d'Ambonnay Clos d'Ambonnay is an intense golden colour with hints of red tones. Amazing aromas of milky caramel, barley sugar, toasted bread, blackcurrant, red fruit jam and jellied fruits. On the palate you may find very rich notes of wild fruits, tarte tatin, brioche, redcurrant and liquorice enhanced by an elegant long finish.
