Vintage Champagne 1992 & 1993: Panel tasting results
Krug, Clos du Mesnil 1992 (disgorged December 2003)
Clos du Mesnil is defined by its all-enclosing high walls, without which this would be an ordinary piece of ground. Anyone who walks through Clos du Mesnil on a sunny spring day will notice the hum of insect life that comes through the clos-induced quietness. One of the great mysteries of the wine world is why every vineyard owner in Europe hasn’t erected a wall, if it makes such a difference. The entire production of this pure Chardonnay Champagne was disgorged in one go and received a dosage of 5g/l.
Decanter average score 18.5pts/20 (95/100pts)
