Champagne Brut Nature Sans Soufre – Drappier
Champagne Brut Nature Sans Soufre – Drappier produced with grapes 100% Pinot Noir
Brut Nature Without Sulphur in a nutshell…
Zero dosage Nature No sulphur added
The Drappier vineyard covers 100 hectares and constitutes the House’s essential trump card.
Since 1808 our family has used its skill to select parcels of land which are particularly well exposed and extremely rich in limestone. For the most part they are located around Urville, where Pinot Noir, the predominant grape variety, finds its loveliest expression and allows the production of very elegant, aromatic wines.
Vinification of the Brut Nature Without Sulphur cuvée Only the juices from first pressing – the cuvées – are used Mechanical low-pressure presses Use of gravity to avoid pumping, thus avoiding oxidisation Natural settling
Alcoholic fermentation for roughly 2 weeks at low temperature Then total and natural malolactic fermentation
No addition of sulphur
Assemblage – 100% of the wines are made in vats in order to preserve as much freshness as possible After bottling, the cuvée is aged at least 3 years sur lattes (on laths).
Tasting notes: Very fresh nose evoking pear, lemon and hazelnuts. On the palate, a very dry, mineral Champagne bursting with life. It will delight enthusiasts and purists on the lookout for new tastebud sensations. Recommended for those allergic to sulphur.
Serving suggestions: Ideal as an aperitif. The perfect accompaniment for seafood, sashimi or even soft goat’s cheese.
Serve at 7°C.
