Krug Clos du Mesnil 1996
The very first bottling of Clos du Mesnil is a fantastic Champagne that blends fresh, lively fruit flavors with a plush texture and expansive finish. A bright citrus character evolves into mature flavors of mineral, vanilla and ginger that seem to melt in your mouth. It's still totally firm in texture and strong in structure so there's no great hurry to pop the cork Serving temperature 8 - 10°C (45°-50 F)
Since 1843, six generations of the Krug family have cultivated the markedly individual character of their exceptional champagne, showing that same single-mindedness and sense of purpose with which the founder, Johann-Joseph Krug, set out alone in pursuit of his objective of creating a champagne with a taste all its own.
