Clos du Mesnil:
A very small parcel belonging to the House Of Krug, this wine is a bit different from most Champagne.
It is one of the rare Champagne (if not the only one), where the grapes are coming from one single type of grapes, the chardonnay, and from one single parcel: Clos du Mesnil(around 1.9 hectares), located in Mesnil sur Ogé and enclose by a stone wall since 1698...
I had the chance to try the Clos du Mesnil a few years ago, and believe me, it was a wonderfull Champagne, like the rest of the Krug's Champagne...
