Drappier

 

Since 1808 the Drappier family has used its skill to select parcels of land, which are particularly well exposed and extremely rich in limestone. They are located in the small village of Urville in the Côte des Bar where Pinot Noir, the predominant grape variety, finds its purest expression and allows the production of very elegant, aromatic wines.

 

With an annual production of some 1.5 million bottles, they are considerably larger than a small grower, but not quite of the size of the Grande Marques in and around Reims and Epernay. Drappier is one of the foremost producers in the region which is highly respected amongst its peers like Cédric Bouchard, Marie-Courtin, Vouette et Sorbée, and Jacques Lassaigne. They own 55 hectares of vineyards and use another 50 hectares under contract with other growers.

An interesting historical fact is that Charles de Gaulle (the Former Minister of the Armed Forces and President of France) was very fond of their champagne and they named a cuvée after him. Amongst their range of excellent cuvées, they have a range including a ‘Sulphur Free’, ‘Zero Dosage’, and a ‘Blanc de Blancs’ that contains a forgotten grape called blanc vrai.
