Krug, Clos du Mesnil, Blanc de Blancs Brut 1996

RRP £4,290

From an iconic single 1.84ha plot of Chardonnay located in the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, this bottle from the original disgorgement release still has an awful lot to offer. A beautifully subtle mousse opens out to aromas of sweet spice and ripe fruit intensity. Tight structure, rich, with layers of complexity and depth on the palate, finishing with creamy oak. Those sweet spice notes hint at its modest evolution, but this retains plenty of energy which will persist for another 10 years for sure.
