- One of the oldest and most prominent houses in Champagne with little to no sulphur across the range
- Made in Honour of Charles de Gaulle as he was a big fan of the Drappier champagnes
- Pair with a simple, yet creamy Brie de Meaux or if you're feeling fancy, choux pastry filled with cream cheese, truffled honey and dehydrated green olive.
Very fine nose of citrus fruits, red apple, almond with a suggestion of nutmeg. On the tongue it exhibits a remarkable complexity, with an airy mousse and lightly candied notes.
The freshness and intensity of the pinot noir comes through along the welcome texture of being non-filtered. This is a very natural approach to winemaking, with real respect to the process, minimal sulfur and high quality fruit.
Welcome to the South, where Pinot noir rules!
Only the juices from first pressing – the cuvées - are used with mechanical low-pressure presses and use of gravity to avoid pumping, thus avoiding 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.
Assemblage – 100% of the wines are made in stainless steel vats in order to preserve as much freshness as possible. After bottling, the cuvée is aged for at least 3 years on lees.
Dosage: 7.5 g/l
