Krug Champagne Clos du Mesnil 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"A study on the interplay between finesse and power. Racy acidity and intense minerality drive this seamlessly meshed wine, while the finely detailed texture and layers of grilled white peach, hazelnut, kumquat and crystalized honey display overall elegance. Hints of fleur de sel and coffee liqueur echo on the finish...98" WS 10/12 "The 2000 Brut Blanc de Blancs Clos du Mesnil continues to be a big, powerful wine with tons of fruit but less of the energy of the very best years. Pastry, smoke, pencil shavings and rich, yellow-fleshed fruit all emerge from this broad-shouldered, intense Clos du Mesnil. The typical refinement of Mesnil is less evident than it has been in past tastings. Perhaps I am spoiled from having drunk many of the great iconic vintages...95" WA 11/12
