Representative Rights Capsule (CRD)
In addition to the decorative function, the capsule fulfills a fiscal function. It carries on its head a green “Marianne” for AOC wines, blue for table wines and vins de pays, the volume corresponding to the capped bottle, the letter “N” for merchants, the letter “R” for independent winegrowers and cooperative cellars. When purchasing CRD capsules, the winegrower pays the circulation fee corresponding to the equivalent volume of wine. The stock of CRD capsules is controlled by customs.
