Product description

Krug Clos d'Ambonnay 1998 has an intense golden colour with hints of red tones. Amazing aromas of milky caramel, barley sugar, toasted bread, blackcurrant, red fruit jam and jellied fruits. On the palate you may find very rich notes of wild fruits, tarte tatin, brioche, redcurrant and liquorice enhanced by an elegant long finish.

98 Points - Wine Spectator    Exotic on the nose, with woodsy spice and bergamot notes, this luxurious Champagne is driven by vivid, crystalline acidity. A streak of salinity underscores the flavors of black currant pâte de fruit, whole-grain toast, clover honey and chopped almond. Drink now through 2034. 

95 Points - Vinous    The 1998 Brut Clos d'Ambonnay appears to have arrived at an early plateau of maturity. Hints of white truffle, orange peel, licorice, honey and roasted almonds are woven together in a super-appealing mélange of aromas, flavors and textures.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate   The 1998 Clos d’Ambonnay displays a very biscuity nose with an undercurrent of butterscotch, nuts, warm apples, strawberry preserves and cinnamon stick plus a whiff of Japanese pickled plums (umeboshi). Concentrated and rich in the mouth, the palate offers layers of red fruit and yeasty flavors with refreshing acid and a long earthy finish.
