ABOUT THE WINE

A champion of expressive Champagne and sustainability, Drappier’s roots also run deep in history, as their “pride and joy” cellars date to the 12th Century, where it was used by Cistercian monks. Based in the Pinot Noir central, Cote des Bar, they naturally focus on the red grape, which now “runs in their veins” with vineyards planted over 2,000 years ago by Gallo-Romans. With the same lime soil composition, identical to that found in Chablis Grand Cru vineyards, Drappier’s bedrock of quality lies on its exceptional terroir. They have embraced a completely sustainable way of wine growing and making by using no herbicides or insecticides and working the soil manually with horses, all to help express their impeccable terroir without masking. None of their wines is filtered or fined using any animal products. They take a further step and use some of the smallest amounts of sulphur in Champagne because the expression is paramount in their philosophy…

TASTING NOTES

A drier (Extra Brut) Champagne with a lovely back bone of citrus lemon, orange blossom & quince, leading into the toasty biscuit notes, but this time with an underlying mineral savouriness. 

FOOD PAIRING

Baked white fish or salmon with Dauphinoise potatoes.

FRIARWOOD SAYS

Although not fully certified yet, Clarevallis is made only from the certified organic vineyards of Drappier. And they go even further with extremely low sulphur addiditons!
