Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 1995
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 in Champagne and the main source of grapes for the House since its very earliest years.
Loyal to the House’s individual parcel approach to Champagne making, the Krug brothers sought to reveal the ultimate and purest expression of the terroir of Ambonnay and endeavoured to find the right planted plot in the area. Their quest lasted for seven years until, in 1991, they discovered Clos d’Ambonnay, a walled plot situated on the edge of the village, on the south-eastern slope of the Montagne de Reims. This precious parcel of just 0.68 hectares (one-third the size of Clos du Mesnil) has been surrounded by protective walls since 1766.
To this plot, Krug applied its exacting attention to detail, pruned it and worked the vineyard to achieve its fullest expression. The family acquired the Clos d’Ambonnay in 1994. The House created the first Krug Clos d’Ambonnay in 1995 and revealed it in 2007.
The 1995 Krug Clos d'Ambonay was almost brutally young despite being 13 years of age. This wine appears to have an incredibly long life ahead of it. Drinking this crystal clear Champagne is almost like drinking pure rocks, with hints of citrus and flowers. It is a beautiful, crisp, mineral-dominated Champagne with 20-30 years of life ahead of it. 98+ Points Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette
