Here everything is purity. In the culmination of a process which over the years has led us to reduce the quantity of sulphites in our Champagnes, no sulphur is added to this cuvée during the different stages of vinification, allowing the Pinot Noir to express itself in perfect freedom. Without dosage but even so exhibiting a remarkable roundness thanks to the maturity of the fruit and the time spent down in our cellars, this cuvée evokes lovely apples and Williams pear, with a hint of citrus fruits.
Producer Information: Drappier
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. 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. Today, Drappier owns fifty-five hectares of vineyard around the town of Urville, with another fifty hectares under contract in the Côte des Bar, Montagne de Reims, and Côte des Blancs.
