2006 Clos du Mesnil Champagne


Only the 19th vintage of Krug Clos du Mesnil—an elegant liquid crafted entirely from Chardonnay grapes grown during one harvest cycle upon a charming 4.5-acre plot of land in the iconic region—the luminous 2006 liquid exemplifies the celebratory spirit of Champagne. Though it noses of citrus and dried fruits, it flourishes on the palate with flavors of buttery pastry and meringue. There’s a welcome intensity to the bubbles, and a lengthy finish. There are only 14,973 bottles of this vintage.
