The 1995 Brut Blanc de Noirs Clos d’Ambonnay is simply profound from the very first sip. All of the classic Krug elements are there; the signature bouquet, the finesse of the best Clos du Mesnils, but with the broader shoulders of Pinot from Ambonnay. The fruit is intricately layered in sublime, graceful notes of mineral-infused, perfumed berries that linger on the eternal finish.
Krug was founded in 1843 by German immigrant Johann-Joseph Krug, in the city of Reims. Johann-Josef had previously worked at Champagne Jacquesson before founding Krug. The house remained in the family for several generations, with continual father-to-son handovers until 1999 when it was bought by luxury holding company LVMH. Despite the take-over, the house is still headed by Krug family member Olivier Krug.
