This cuvée Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) sparkling-wine is a blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from specially selected parcels of grapes, and only the first pressing / best juice is used. Bottled in 2017, this MCC was bottle-fermented and matured on the lees for 27 months before dégorging. Hand-crafted with great tenderness and dedicated to winemaker Matthew Krone’s enchantingly graceful and headstrong eldest daughter, Alexandra de la Marque. 

Only 3,000 bottles of this limited release MCC were produced, with subsequent vintage launches only available on Leap Years. “My wife and daughters inspire me to produce my wines from the heart; while my family winemaking heritage of 300 years and my dreams for the future, guarantee the quality of my wines”. – Matthew Krone

TASTING NOTES: A sublimely elegant and classically styled MCC that is layered with complexity. The extended bottle fermentation adds beautiful depth to the nose delivering a quintessential biscuity bouquet, whilst the palate displays a fine mousse of delicate lingering bubbles that deliver great finesse and subtle aromas. The result is a mouth-watering finish to ‘tickle the back of your brain’.
