Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 exalts the crisp purity of a single walled plot of vines (clos in french): Krug’s Clos du Mesnil in the village of mesnil-sur-oger, and of a single grape variety: chardonnay, all from a single year: 2003. Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 has tones of luminous yellow gold colour which shimmers with brightness. You will be seduced by aromas of praline, hazelnuts, ginger and spices. In the palate you will find strong flavors of honey, quince and candied citrus fruit, with a long and slightly lemony finish. 2003 stands out for its dramatic climate of extremes: a very dry winter and spring with an early flowering period followed by a very warm summer. The rare beauty and singularity of the year’s grapes are expressed by the power and aromas inherited from the very particular circumstances of 2003, making this year an exceptional one. The House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003 because, from the very first tastings, the Chardonnay grapes of the 2003 harvest already revealed a delightful, expressive and balanced character without any excess aromatic intensity. Fish, crustaceans and spicy far eastern food combine beautifully with Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003. From a tangy wok of shrimp in sate spices to beurre noir skate wings with capers and spices or a traditional sole meunière, all revel in the flavours and aromas of Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003. As a Prestige Cuvée, Krug Champagnes age beautifully, the time revealing their richness and elegance. Your Champagne should be stored in a wine cellar, or in a cool (between 10 to 15 °C - 50 to 59 °F) dry and away from light place, the exact conditions of Krug cellars. The richness of your Krug Champagne is fully revealed between 9°C and 12°C (49°F - 54°F). Serving your bottle too cold would refrain the aromas’expression. Krug has created The Joseph, a unique crystal glass whose shape enables the bubbles to reach their optimal expression and allows the discovery of the incredible bouquet of aromas. If you do not have The Joseph glass, you may prefer a white Burgundy glass to a flute, to enable the expression of Krug Champagne’s flavors and aromas.
