‘This delightful wine is a benchmark for the Aube. Its exquisite texture boasts a delightfully creamy, dense feel and vibrant energy. The fruit aromas range from ripe pear to apricot and quince, accented by fresh white flowers and a firm mineral note. The grapes come from a single site that has been in the family since the 19th century that is organically farmed and worked by horse. The base wines are fermented in large oak uprights and dosed at 4.5g/L after eight years on the lees. 2023-2050’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 95/100

‘A tightly meshed Champagne, slowly revealing layers of ripe black cherry, blood orange granita, blanched almond, crystallized honey and oyster shell flavors as they ride the fine, creamy, satiny mousse. Reveals saline tang that works in tandem with finely knit acidity to create a mouthwatering finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2032.’ – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 93/100

Producer information The House of Drappier was established during Napoleonic times, though its Urville cellars date back to the 12th century. Considered to be one of Champagne's greatest boutique producers, Drappier's vintage and prestige cuvées were famously collected by Charles de Gaulle - the French general and statesman who led the Free French Forces during the Second World War. Drappier's winemaking philosophy is one of minimum intervention and, since 2008, the house has been producing Champagne with very little addition of sugar and sulphur dioxide. The wines are typically fruity, lively and exuberant with a strong Pinot Noir influence.
