Krug - Krug Clos du Mesnil 2003
Tasting Notes and Scores
19/20 Essi Avellan MW – “Deep golden. Strong, oaky, charred, super-intense nose showing beautiful evolution and yeasty depth. Really powerful, with mild oxidative notes but backed up by plenty of acidity and vibrancy. Thisiis still youthful, and the oak will get better integrated over time.”
Incredibly fresh and vibrant, this stunning Champagne weaves a tightly knit skein of ripe pear and tangy yellow plum fruit flavors together, with accents of rich pastry cream, toasted brioche, elderflower, ground cardamom and coffee liqueur. Shows a beautiful texture. A thread of salinity winds through to the lasting finish. Disgorged fall 2013. Drink now through 2029. 832 cases made.
