Wine Region: Champagne, France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Vermilion gold in color. Nose of freshly pressed black grapes, of red, white and citrus fruits.
Ample palate with flesh of vineyard peach and bouquet of aromatic herbs. Small spicy notes in the finish. A fine, tightly knit Champagne of great purity.
Wine Spectator 92 pts - Firm acidity frames this dry version, yet it's finely integrated with a subtle range of yellow plum, apricot, biscuit, fleur de sel and crushed almond flavors, providing definition without hard angles. Ends with a lacy finish. Drink now through 2020.
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.
