About

For one of Champagne’s most forward-thinking producers, Drappier has
no shortage of historic roots. An eighth-generation family business, the
house was founded in 1808, and occupies magnificent twelfth-century
cellars built by Cistercian monks. Having spearheaded the revival of Pinot
Noir in the region, in the 1930s, Drappier continued to innovate. Rosé in
a clear bottle was introduced in 1968; extremely low levels of sulphur are
used, and there is even a no-added-sulphur cuvée made; the liqueur
d’expédition is matured for over fifteen years in oak and demi-johns.

Includes 2 free glasses and gift box

Over half of Drappier’s production comes from the family’s own vineyards
near their base in Urville. Viticulture is close to organic, with horse-drawn
ploughing, cover crops and natural fertiliser used.

Only the juice from the first pressing – the cuvée – was used, and
was transferred to tank by gravity. After a natural settling, the alcoholic
fermentation took place over two weeks at a low temperature, followed
by complete, natural malolactic fermentation. Five percent of the blend
was aged for a year in barrel to give extra depth. Minimal sulphur was
used during the production.
