- One of the oldest and most prominent houses in Champagne with little to no sulphur across the range
- Drappier specialise in large format bottles going right up to Melchizedek which is 30 litres or 40 standard 750ml bottles
- Pair with lots of Friends and canapes. We do like the idea of swordfish and or Pork cutlets and roasted potatoes, parsnips, carrot and the like.
Here is the Carte d'Or in a responsible half bottle. The excellent starting point of champagne made at this historic and yet progressive Maison.
The colours are intense deep yellow with shiny golden hues. The nose is open, fruit-driven and expressive that lead into citrus and grapefruit plus some hazelnut and brioche complexity.
The texture is silken, soft and moreish. It has roundness to the palate with a refreshing crispness bringing everything back into focus. Finally we complete the journey with a little spice and honeyed notes.
This is quality champagne at an excellent price point.
A non-vintage cuvée made from 75% Pinot Noir / 15% Chardonnay / 10% Meunier from the Côte des Bar with minimal use of sulphites during winemaking, and 5% of the wines matured in barrels for 1 year to enrich the cuvée. Dosage is at a moderate 7 g/l.
