  • The champagne is golden with copper hues and exudes the aromas of freshly pressed black grapes and red, white, and citrus fruits on the nose. Its ample palate delivers vineyard peach and a bouquet of aromatic herbs, culminating with spicy notes in the finish. This blanc de noir showcases compelling purity, elegance, and bone-dry characteristics, featuring delicate mineral and lemon notes alongside richer pear and white peach flavours. It is an excellent aperitif and pairs impeccably with seafood, sashimi, or soft goat cheese. The recommended serving temperature is 7°C.

For one of Champagne’s most forward-thinking producers, Drappier has no shortage of historical roots. An eighth-generation family business, the house was founded in 1808 and occupies magnificent twelfth-century cellars built by Cistercian monks. Indeed, it was members of this monastic order who travelled up from Burgundy to the Aube region nearly a millennium ago and planted the early ancestor of Pinot Noir. In the early twentieth century, however, Pinot Noir had fallen out of favour in the region. Drappier could sense its potential and was the first to replant it in the 1930s, earning ridicule from neighbours until the quality advantages became clear.

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.
