  • While they only produce Clos du Mesnil in exceptional years, it's easier to list the vintages not produced since 1979. No Clos du Mesnil was not produced in 1984, 1987, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1997 (Salon's production this year makes Krug's decision curious), 1999, and 2001. Also, the 2003 was released prior to the 2002.
