rug Clos du Mesnil Blanc de Blancs 1998


1998 Krug Clos du Mesnil

“A wine that has created its own universe. It has a unique, special softness that allies with the total purity that comes from a small, enclosed single vineyard. The fruit is almost irrelevent here, because it comes as part of a much deeper complexity. This is a great wne, at the summit of Champagne, a sublime unforgettable experience. “

“A picture of finesse and harmony. Hints of vanilla and warm baking spices and floral aromas introduce flavors of fresh chanterelle, honey, lemon and mineral. The vibrant structure emerges from midpalate through the finish as this unravels its charms. The aftertaste echoes orange peel, spice and woodsy notes. Drink now through 2020.”

“The 1998 Brut Blanc de Blancs Clos du Mesnil has come together beautifully since I tasted it last year. This is a remarkably taut, focused bottle of the 1998 with great energy and minerality in its precise, crystalline fruit. I don’t expect the 1998 to be one of the longest-lived Mesnils, but if this bottle is any indication, it should continue to drink well for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.”
