TASTING NOTES

Appearance: At first sight, vibrant luminosity and an intense golden colour redolent of ripe wheat.

Aroma: On the nose, delicate aromas of citrus, barley sugar and dried fruits with balance and freshness

Taste: On the palate,  it is generous and round with beautiful intensity. Initial hints of madeleine cake and brioche give way to notes of pastry, tarte tatin, lemon meringue, bitter orange and a little spice. The finish is long, with great tension and notes of candied ginger.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 pairs beautifully with fish or shellfish dishes such as fillet of flounder in a saffron sauce, zander with beurre blanc, seared scallops or tuna carpaccio. It may also be enjoyed with delicately flavoured meat dishes such as blanquette de veau.

ORIGIN

Reims, Champagne France. The House was established in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual climate variations. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, as well as building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years, allowed Joseph Krug to fulfil his dream.
