about the harvest: Assemblage of the best from each cuvée, using only traditional grape varieties (Pinot Noir & Chardonnay) that were hand picked in the cool of the night and early morning hours at the beginning of the harvest season.

in the cellar : Only the free run juice is used for this MCC product - ± the first 500 litres per ton.

Bottled in 2004, then bottle fermented and matured on the lees in our underground cellars after which, prior to dégorging, the bottles are packed in wooden pupitres (turning racks) and the rémuage (turning of the bottles) is done entirely by hand.

Nicolas Charles Krone is microbiologically stable, and a true celebration of the vintner's art. The newest star to the Krone constellation!
