Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998

Cuvee: Brut Non-Vintage
Vintage: 1998


Krug Clos d’Ambonnay celebrates, with the rarest of Champagnes, the unique character of a particular Pinot Noir grape.
They are harvested in a tiny walled 0.68-hectare plot in the heart of Ambonnay, one of the most distinguished villages for this grape variety in Champagne, and one which has played a very special role in the life of the House of Krug.
Krug’s savoir-faire has successfully revealed the fullness and intensity of grapes from this single plot in the year 1998, enhanced by over twelve years in the cellars gaining finesse and elegance.
Tasting Notes
Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 has intense golden colour with hints of red tones.
Amazing aromas of milky caramel, barley sugar, toasted bread, blackcurrant, red fruit jam and jellied fruits. In the palate you may find very rich notes of wild fruits, tarte tatin, brioche, redcurrant and liquorice enhanced by an elegant long finish.
Food Pairing
Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 can be enjoyed with truffles, bold flavours, poultry and noble shellfish (common and spiny lobster).
It may also be enhanced by simple but wonderful food pairings such as shavings of aged parmesan, scrambled eggs with truffles, pata negra ham fed with bellota, or toasted rustic bread with truffles and extra virgin olive oil.
