Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 (Suggested Retail Price: $800 for 750ml)

The expression of a single plot of Chardonnay harvested in 2002 from a small vineyard of just 1.84 hectares makes Krug Clos du Mesnil very rare. The House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 because the year 2002, marked by the generosity of the yields, succeeded in offering ideal conditions for the maturation of beautiful grapes with the promise of revealing the full potential of this walled plot.

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2002 arrives after 13 years in the cellars and will continue to mature with the passage of time, evidence that patience is the constant ally of all Krug champagnes.
