THE INTENSITY OF A SINGLE PLOT OF PINOT NOIR IN 2002
The House of Krug’s unique craftsmanship has revealed a rare Champagne
from a remarkable terroir, the Clos d’Ambonnay. This tiny walled plot of
0.68 hectares is located in the heart of Ambonnay, one of the most
distinguished villages for Pinot Noir grapes in Champagne and the main
source of Pinot Noir for the House since its very earliest years.
The climate of the year 2002 was generous, consistently mild and relatively dry. The high point of this exceptionally clement year was its long summer of warm days and cool nights that offered the ideal conditions for grape maturation.
The harvest of the Clos d’Ambonnay took place on 21 September 2002 and afforded grapes in excellent condition and fine health.
The harvest afforded 4743 bottles and 240 magnums, all individually numbered.
As with all Krug Champagnes, Clos d’Ambonnay 2002 will continue to gain with the passage of time.
The full story of every bottle is revealed via its Krug iD, the six digits on the back label.
Comes beautifully gift boxed.
Tasting Notes:Gingerbread, candied orange peel & hazelnuts with a long citrus fruit finish.
