A tribute to Pinot Noir, the Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut is a paradox of rich, berry fruit and refreshing, natural elegance. Each successful Krone vintage is an achievement; a mark of a moment, a time to be celebrated.
Vintage Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) Bottle-fermented sparkling wine 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay

about the harvest: The classic varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are hand-picked in the cool of the night.

in the cellar : Krone Rosé is bottlefermented and prior to disgorging, the bottles are packed in wooden pupitres (turning racks) and the rémuage (turning of bottles) is done entirely by hand. Truly a hand-crafted wine which requires patience.
