Drappier Carte d’Or Brut Champagne
Once occupied by Cistercian monks from Clairvaux Abbey, the seat of the Drappier House includes some magnificent 12th-century vaulted cellars. The ancestral tree of the Drappier Family has its roots in the 17th century, with the birth in 1604 of Rémy Drappier. One must wait until 1803 for one of the ancestors of the House, François, to move to Urville and begin working a vineyard which today extends over 55 hectares. The vines in Urville were originally planted by the Romans 2000 years ago.
Buy Drappier Carte d’Or Brut Champagne
In 1952 André and Micheline Drappier launch the Carte d’Or cuvée with its distinctive yellow label. This reminds one of quince jelly, a yellow fruit of which several aromatic notes are found in every bottle. Fresh and pure, offering floral, yellow fruit and mineral flavors, this bubbly is graceful and beautifully integrated. The texture is firm and refined, with a subtle nutty note on the finish.
