- Exciting new arrival from France
- Organic + Pinot Noir dominant champagne
- Amazing producer from the Côte des Bar
Champagne Clarevallis, which has Ecocert certification, is made from grapes grown on Jurassic limestone land that is farmed organically and tilled, in part, by horse.
This cuvée is an extra-brut champagne, Pinot Noir dominant (75%) with the rest made of Chardonnay (10%), Pinot Meunier (10%) and Blanc Vrai (also called Pinot Blanc, 5%). The grapes are selected from the 16 hectare organically certified vineyard. Clarevallis is unfiltered and has very low sulphites.
Clarevallis is characterised by a golden-grey colour with hints of elderberry and violet in its taste. Fragrant aromatics with orange blossom coming from the Pinot Blanc, notes of lime and white flower. A dry wine with amazing structure.
The name Clarevallis has many centuries of history behind it, since it is the name given by Saint-Bernard to the abbey he founded in 1115. This name ultimately evolved into Clairvaux. Champagne Drappier’s wines have been vinified and aged in cellars built in 1152 by monks from the Clairvaux abbey.
Champagne Drappier describes Clarevallis as “the expression and reflection of both the landscape and the land that men and women have been tending here since the 12th century.”
