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. The Côte des Bar terroir is distinguished by its clay-limestone soils, which give the grapes exceptional ripeness and characteristic freshness. 

The vines are carefully cultivated, favoring environmentally-friendly methods such as organic... See more ...

Description Drappier Clarevallis.

Cuvée CLAREVALLIS (the Latin name for the Abbey of Clairvaux, built by Saint Bernard) comes from grapes grown organically on the Urville hillside, which was already planted in Cistercian times. Clarevallis is the expression of the landscape and land that man has nurtured since the 12th century. 

With a low dosage, the nose reveals elderberry, violet and floral notes. The presence of a fine minerality is rounded out by the pulp of the pinot. A certain tension on the palate brings out pretty bitter flavors. 

An excellent Champagne to enjoy as an aperitif or with marinated fish such as sea bream and grapefruit ceviche.
