  • Drappier's flagship wine is remarkably rich and savoury, showcasing intricate, mature aromas of dried fruit, toast, and wax, accompanied by vibrant stone fruit and citrus flavours. The palate exudes gracefulness despite its underlying strength and culminates in an exceptionally long finish. Following 10 years of meticulous craftsmanship, the 2012 Grande Sendree is mature yet has the potential for further ageing. Pinot noir remains prominent, characterized by its Napoleon cherry notes, while chardonnay equally asserts its presence on the palate with fresh vanilla and floral undertones. Despite its maturity, the wine maintains a vibrant liveliness in the mouth, complemented by subtle bitters, and concludes with a taut, enduring finish featuring mineral and subtly spicy nuances. This exceptional Champagne is well-suited for prolonged cellaring.

 

Impressively rich and savoury, Drappier’s flagship wine shows complex, mature notes of dried fruit, toast, and wax alongside vivid stone fruit and citrus flavours. The palate is graceful despite its underlying power and finishes extremely long.

Winery

Today, Drappier owns fifty-five hectares of vineyard around Urville, with another fifty hectares under contract in the Cote des Bar, Montagne de Reims, and Cote des Blancs. Although Pinot Noir accounts for most wine produced, the style is not heavy. A vivacity and lightness of touch demonstrate great skill since these champagnes have plenty of concentration and substance. And, again, despite the Pinot dominance, the house has a great feel for Blanc de Blancs, be it 100% Chardonnay or the rare blend of all four, mostly obscure, white grapes permitted in Champagne.
