  • Country France
  • Region Champagne
  • Abv 12 %
  • Case size 3 / 75c
  • Very low sulphites.
  • Bottle ageing for 9 years
  • 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.
  • After 10 years of handcraft, the 2012 Grande Sendree is mature but can still wait for many years. The pinot noir is still dominant with its Napoleon cherry notes. Chardonnay is also very present on the palate with its fresh vanilla and flower notes. In the mouth, it is still very tonic with subtle bitters while the low dosage leaves a tense and long finish with mineral and slightly spicy notes. A great Champagne for ageing.

 

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

Today, Drappier owns fifty-five hectares of vineyard around the town of Urville, with another fifty hectares under contract in the Cote des Bar, Montagne de Reims, and Cote des Blancs. Although Pinot Noir accounts for the majority of wine produced, the style is not heavy. There is a vivacity and lightness of touch here that demonstrates 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.
