CHAMPAGNE DRAPPIER MILLESIME EXCEPTION 2013

Wine Region: Champagne, France

Grapes: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

A very complex, rich nose revealing hints of white fruits, almond and fresh ginger. In the mouth it is lightly creamy with good tightness and a suggestion of brioche.
A floral touch testifies to the high proportion of Chardonnay while the depth of the Pinot Noir is expressed in the form of red fruits and appealing bitter
notes.

About the Winery

Although the vines in Urville were originally planted by the Romans 2000 years ago, it was Saint Bernard, founder of Clairvaux Abbey, who had our cellars built in 1152.
Seven centuries later, in 1808, around this magnificently preserved testimony to medieval times, where the exceptional cuvees slumber, the family domaine was created which today is headed by Michel Drappier. An area in which Pinot Noir thrives, a grape variety which “runs through our veins”, Urville lies where our vineyard was first planted and is now cultivated according to organic and natural principles.
Today, rather than sophisticated we prefer authenticity and a natural approach.
Thanks mainly to very low quantities of dosage and extremely limited use of sulphites, of which the Brut Nature Without Sulphur cuvee is the culmination, we are able to highlight the multifaceted aspects of our terroirs and our wine-making.
