Champagne Drappier Carte d'Or Brut, Urville, France

The Drappier vineyard covers 100 hectares and constitutes the House’s essential trump card. Since 1808 the family has used its skill to select parcels of land which are particularly well exposed and extremely rich in limestone. For the most part they are located around Urville, where Pinot Noir, the predominant grape variety, finds its loveliest expression and allows the production of very elegant, aromatic wines. The Carte d’or Cuvée is the very expression of the Drappier style. With its very high proportion of Pinot Noir, one almost tastes a Blanc de Noirs. Champagne with a fine aromatic richness, it opens with aromas of stoned fruits such as white vineyard peach. A spicy hint announces a powerful and complex palate. A vinous Champagne of lovely complexity with a characteristic note of quince jelly.” – From the Winery.
