Rooted. In time, in history, in the very soils we call home. Rooted in our belief of sharing the story of every growing season, harvest and vinification in our underground cellar. From our farm to your table.
Our winemaking team channels the rain, the sun, the wind into structure, complexity and balance - and seals it all with a cork.
“What marked the 2019 vintage for me were the clean and healthy grapes we harvested, with firm acidities producing superlative base wines for making age-worthy Méthode Cap Classiques. I believe it’s a vintage we’ll remember for some time to come.”
Traditional Champagne grape varieties, chardonnay and pinot noir have been night-harvested since the early 1980s to preserve the quality and delicate aromas and flavours of the grapes. Only the free-run juice is used for Krone vintage-only Méthode Cap Classique: the first 500 litres per ton.
Time, patience and dedication to handcrafted Cap Classique creates the perfect platform for each vintage to shine.

Pale pink. A radiance of red fruit, glossy and spontaneous. Bright summer strawberries, licks of whipped cream. The brightness of lemon unfurls alongside heady maraschino cherries.
