Winemaker Notes

“For 15 years, Champagne Krug has kept a secret. During that time, brothers Rémi and Henri Krug, the former managing director and winemaker, respectively, and Henri’s son, Olivier Krug, the current managing director, dreamed about, developed, vinified and aged a new single-vineyard Champagne. The new wine, Clos d’Ambonnay 1995, has one of the highest-ever price tags of a newly released wine…

The Clos d’Ambonnay is a blanc de noirs made entirely from Pinot Noir. Ambonnay is a village in the Montagne de Reims, rated grand cru, where the southeast exposure tends to yield richer, fuller wines…

“The idea arose a few years after the revelation of Krug Clos du Mesnil, when both Henri and Rémi had in mind to find a second jewel vineyard,” said Olivier Krug. “That jewel was owned by one of our suppliers in Ambonnay, which had always been one of our darling villages.”

The 1995 is the first vintage of the wine to be released… Compounding the difficulty of acquiring a bottle is that only 250 cases were made.”
