Drappier is a family-owned Champagne house that dates back to the 19th century. Their Champagnes hail from the clay-rich soils of the Aube, where Pinot Noir produces fruity, exuberant wines with aromatic richness. Embracing authenticity and a natural approach, Michel Drappier, the current family head, believes in minimal intervention, with very little addition of sugar and sulphur dioxide. Their Carte d’Or Brut has some of the lowest counts of both compared to other ‘standard’ non-vintage cuvées.
‘75% Pinot Noir with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, there is no filtering and minimal use of sulphur. The dosage of just 7g/l and 5% of the wine is matured in barrels for 1 year to enrich the cuvée. Granny Smith apple, toasted almond, currant and whole-grain toast flavors are fresh and well-meshed, structured by bright acidity and a lively bead. Offers a creamy finish, with hints of smoke and honeycomb. Drink now through 2018.’ – Wine Spectator 91/100.
