The Carte d’Or cuvée is the very expression of the Drappier style.
With its very high proportion of Pinot Noir, one is almost tasting a Blanc de Noirs. Champagne with a fine aromatic richness, it opens with aromas of stone fruits such as white peach.
A spicy hint announces a powerful and complex palate. A vinous champagne of great complexity with a characteristic note of quince.
Made with 75% pinot noir and 15% chardonnay, 10% Meunier.
Only the juices from first pressing – the cuvées - are used with mechanical low-pressure presses and use of gravity to avoid pumping, which avoids oxidisation. Minimal use of sulphur; Natural settling; Alcoholic fermentation for roughly 2 weeks at low temperature; followed by total and natural malolactic fermentation; No filtering.
5% of the wines are matured in barrels for 1 year to enrich the cuvée.
Dosage: 7 g/l
