Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
A particularly luminous straw-gold colour which shimmers with brightness.
Aromas of brioche, caramel, and spices.
In the mouth, a very fresh taste with rich flavours of Tarte Tatin, caramel and pastry cream, with a long and slightly lemony finish.
Krug Clos d´Ambonnay 2000 is the expression of a unique walled plot of Pinot Noir harvested in 2000.
2000 was one hot, rainy and stormy year. The harvest at Krug’s Clos d’Ambonnay took place in one day on September 29th; it was superbly bountiful with astoundingly rich Pinot Noir grapes.
The House of Krug chose to reveal Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 2000 because, from the very first tastings, the Pinot Noir grapes harvested glowed with a rare generosity and beauty; they revealed a delightful, balanced character without any excess aromatic intensity.
The year 2000 thus succeeded in expressing the full potential of this walled plot with true beauty and poise.
Krug Clos D'Ambonnay 2000 may be enhanced by pairing it with meat such as a spiced lamb tagine. Sweet potato mash with a dash of grated nutmeg, or any creative combination with candied citrus fruits.
