‘The latest release of Drappier's NV Brut Blanc de Quatre Blancs Quattuor—an unusual blend of Arbanne, Petite Meslier, Blanc Vrai and Chardonnay—opens in the glass with an attractive bouquet of honeycomb, crisp yellow orchard fruit, dried white flowers, marzipan and toasted walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and crisply fleshy, with a deep core of fruit, an elegant pinpoint mousse and tangy balancing acids, concluding with a long, nutty finish. This is a terrific rendition of this rare bottling, and it's more than a mere curio; indeed, it's well worth seeking out. 2018-2030’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 93/100

‘The NV Brut Blanc de Quatre Blancs Quattuor is laced with hazlenuts, almonds, orange peel and dried pears. There is an attractive, oxidative quality that mkes the the NV Quatre Blancs quite appealing. A gracious, crystalline finish adds considerable finesse and weightlessness in this expressive, layered Champagn., The wine keeps getting better and better with time in the glass, so some advance aeration is probably a good idea. Disgorgement date July 2012. 2013-2017’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 91/100

‘Distinctive aroma of citrus and green apple, biting freshness in a creamy framework. Tight, zesty and with just a hint of autolytic yeastiness but mostly it's about the fruit. Fine mousse and persistent. 2018-2021’ – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

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.
