An incredibly intense Champagne
The Krug Clos d'Ambonnay is a Pinot Noir single-varietal Champagne produced on an area of 0.68 hectares, reinforcing the rarity of this product. It is all the finer because it was cellared for 12 years.
The Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 1998 has a golden colour with beautifully intense copper-coloured reflections. The nose has scents of milk caramel, barley sugar, toast, blackcurrant, red fruit jam and fruit jelly. On the palate, it reveals flavours of wild fruits, tarte tatin, brioche, gooseberry and liquorice. The incredible intensity of this wine blends perfectly into its unique finish. It has a very good ageing potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1998 Brut Blanc de Noirs Clos d'Ambonnay reaffirms my impression from last year. The 1998 is a rich, vinous Clos d-Ambonnay with generous fruit and an inviting, open personality. Crushed flowers, plums, cherries and sweet spices all flow from the glass. Today, the 1998 is rich, deep and highly expressive. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
