Clos de Mesnil is a tribute to Chardonnay in the best way possible. In 1971, Krug acquired and replanted the Clos du Mesnil, a walled vineyard of less than 5 acres. Its Chardonnay grapes provide one of Champagne's very few single-vineyard, or Cru, wines of which the 1979 vintage was the first.
The walls around the vineyard create a micro climate giving unique character to the grapes creating a champagne which clearly stands out from all those around. In 2010 The Wine Spectator described this unique and wonderful champagne as: A wine that has created its own universe. It has a unique, special softness that allies with the total purity that comes from a small, enclosed single vineyard. The fruit is almost irrelevant here, because it comes as part of a much deeper complexity. This is a great wine, at the summit of champagne, a sublime unforgettable experience.
