Richard on Krug ‘Clos du Mesnil’
Krug’s 1.87 hectares small, walled Chardonnay vineyard in the heart of Le Mesnil-sûr-Oger is no Angkor Wat, Burj Khalifa or Machu Picchu in terms of sheer beauty or magnificence.
Krug themselves are prouder of their ‘Grande Cuvée‘ blends, and the majestic vintage wine dominated by Pinot, but in my mind, there is nothing more beautiful than the quintessence of the grandest of all the champagnes Grand cru in the hands of the foremost estate.
