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 Grande Sendrée 2010.

Terroir, vintage, rare Champagne at its finest. 

La Grande Sendrée is the name of a parcel of land situated on "Kimmeridgian crayot" soil, covered in ashes following the fire that ravaged Urville in 1836. In its unique Louis XV bottle, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are revealed at their very best. 

The grape varieties are almost equally divided between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to achieve a perfect balance between finesse and power. 

This champagne has an old gold color, with very fine, discreet bubbles. 

The nose reveals aromas of hawthorn, honey, acacia, beeswax and almond paste. 

The invigorating attack on the palate awakens the taste buds, and its beautiful effervescence balances notes of red and candied fruit. The finish lingers on a delicate minerality. 

This vintage cuvée is ideal with fine dishes such as rack of lamb with foie gras or fillets of sole with a creamy lemon sauce.
