Krone R.D celebrates the traditional method of selecting an outstanding vintage Champagne or Méthode Cap Classique and allowing it many years of maturation on the lees to allow richness, power and weight to evolve in the wine.
The Krone R.D. 2001 spent 15 years on the lees before disgorgement and a low dosage added.
The result is a rare vintage Méthode Cap Classique offering great concentration coupled with a youthful vibrancy which ensures that this wine can be enjoyed on release or after further ageing.
A complex nose with fresh aromas of green apple and lemon zest together with subtle notes of freshly baked pie crust. The palate is intense and complex offering baked apple, salted caramel, roasted nuts and a discreet note of honey. The mid-palate and finish show breadth as well as bright acidity making the wine perfect for enjoyment now and for a few years to come.
