Description

An aromatic and complex champagne by Drappier

The producer

Since its creation in 1808, the history of the Drappier Champagne House has been closely linked to Pinot Noir, its favorite grape variety. It was in the 1930s that, against the general opinion of the village, this grape variety was replanted on the estate. History proved the house right, and the 100% Pinot Noir Drappier wine was General de Gaulle’s favorite during his family meals.

Today, the children of André and Micheline Drappier represent the eighth generation to care for this exceptional organic and biodynamic vineyard by honoring forgotten grape varieties such as Arbane, Petit Meslier and Blanc Vrai.

The vineyard

The vineyard of the Drappier Champagne House spreads over 100 hectares of vines, to the south of Reims, split between the old vines in the Cote des Bar, the intense Pinot Noir in the Montagne de Reims and the very fine Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs. This vineyard gets its distinctive feature from its limestone-rich terroir combined with maximum amounts of sunshine. Some of the Drappier House’s parcels are also worked with draught horses.

The vinification and aging

This Carte d'Or cuvee by the Drappier Champagne House is made from the first press. Vinification is carried out by gravity, followed by natural settling. Malolactic fermentation. 5% of the wines are aged in oak barrels. Use of 40% reserve wines. The dosage is 6.5 g/l.

The blend

Pinot Noir (80%)
Chardonnay (15%)
Pinot Meunier (5%)
