    This Clos du Mesnil 1998 of the Champagne House Krug offers a bright, pale and slightly golden robe. Its colour shows its great purity. Aromas of candied fruits and cholocate are released, accompanied by notes of white truffle. To the palate, this champagne is bold and surprises by its intensity mixed to an extreme freshness. It evolves with flexibility.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 1998 Brut Blanc de Blancs Clos du Mesnil has come together beautifully since I tasted it last year. This is a remarkably taut, focused bottle of the 1998 with great energy and minerality in its precise, crystalline fruit. I don't expect the 1998 to be one of the longest-lived Mesnils, but if this bottle is any indication, it should continue to drink well for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.
