Drappier

The Champagne Drappier is an iconic Champagne house, renowned for its rich history and commitment to the exceptional quality of its cuvées. Founded in 1808 by François Drappier, the family-run house is located in the village of Urville, in the heart of the Côte des Bar, in the Champagne region.

The history of the Drappier family goes back more than two centuries, when François Drappier, a passionate winemaker, decided to create his own house of Champagne. He acquired vineyards in the Côte des Bar, a southern region of the Champagne, less well known than the Montagne de Reims or the Vallée de la Marne, but which plays an essential role in the diversity of the Champagne terroir. 

Over the generations, the Drappier family has perpetuated its winemaking know-how and heritage, focusing on pRéserver traditional values while adopting innovative practices. Today, the house is still run by the same family, who make it a point of honor to respect tradition while pushing the boundaries of excellence. 

The terroir of the Côte des Bar is a major asset to the quality of the house's Champagnes. The vineyards cover around 70 hectares, spread over various villages, including Urville, where the Champagne house is located.

Description Drappier Charles de Gaulle.

Champagne DRAPPIER had the honor of being chosen by Charles de Gaulle for his private receptions at Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, where he liked to offer an aromatic, authentic champagne.  

On the nose, notes of citrus fruit, apple, almond and nutmeg. After aeration, the nose develops aromas of pastry and gingerbread.  

The palate is clean and complex, with an airy mousse and slightly candied notes.

This Champagne is perfect as an aperitif or with white meat.
