Krone Borealis Vintage Cuvée Brut2016

(MCC) Vintage Méthode Cap Classique
90% Chardonnay 9% Pinot Noir 1% Pinot Blanc

Legend records that Bacchus, God of Wine in Greek mythology, fell in love with Ariadne, daughter of the King of Crete. In order to uplift her spirits and prove his love to her, he threw her golden crown, a circlet of gems, into the heavens where it remained to shine forever as the dainty constellation of stars called CORONA BOREALIS. Corona means crown, as does Krone – hence KRONE BOREALIS a little poetic licence used to describe this Méthode Cap Classique being full of ‘stars.

The Making

Traditional grape varieties (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) are harvested in the cool of the night. Only the free-run juice is used for this MCC product - ± the first 500 litres per ton. Krone Borealis is bottle-fermented and then matures on the lees in the underground cellars.

Elegant, iridescent gold. Oyster shell and chalky limestone character leads to pineapple, fresh yellow apple and salted caramel flavours with a fine, persistent mouth filling mousse. Creamy textures on the mid-palate with some baked piecrust, and a refreshing, tangy finish.
