Owner noted of 5 by Larousse guide of champagne
The Drappier moved in 1805 from Reims to Urville, a small town of the Dawn, and they formed their vineyard in 1808. One hundred acres, he thrives on beautiful limestone slopes, with a high proportion of Pinot Noir (70%) completed at equal share of chardonnay and pinot meunier. 35 hectares of Chardonnay and black Cramant the Montagne de Reims Pinot supplement supplies. The vineyards have historically been grown in a philosophy that is now called "organic" and are not interventionist winemaking.
Drappier André and his son, Michel, use only the first pressed and alcoholic and malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The slow ripening Champagne is made since 1958 in the beautiful cellars of the Abbey of Clairvaux, the cellars being completed in 1991 by a chalk cellar in Reims.
A family home that uses natural and authentic, giving magnificent powerful champagnes and strong character.
A rare champagne in France since two thirds of the bottles are exported.
