DRAPPIER

Drappier is considered the finest boutique producer in the Côtes des Bar region of the Aube district, the southernmost region of Champagne. It was founded in 1808 in the village of Urville, and is today headed up by the urbane and amicable Michel Drappier, the seventh generation to run the family business. The eighth generation, Charline, Hugo and Antoine, are immersed in the running of the company and poised to one day take the reins.

Exponents of organic and traditional practices, the Drappiers employ minimal amounts of sulphur (in Champagne the average is 90-130 gm, with the Drappier wines sitting at 0-40mg) and a low dosage approach that bestows a dry and aromatic elegance upon their expressions. No shortage of history either, with Drappier’s vaulted cellars tracing back to 1152. The pride of the house, the limestone-rich vineyards themselves, were initially established by the Romans 2,000 years ago.

The region’s first zero-rated carbon producers, the Drappiers are proactive in pushing the envelope, fearlessly embracing the concept of large-format bottles (despite losing a staggering 25% to exploding bottles), experimenting with maturing their wine on the ocean floor and developing an exclusive wild yeast sourced from their own estate to use on their wines. They use 90% recy-cled glass and 75% of their electricity is sourced from solar pan-els. There is much to admire about this innovative family house, not least the brilliant prices of their exquisite champagnes.

Michel Drappier

Drappier are introducing a new, elegantly curvaceous bottle, designed by Michel Drappier, to house their flagship cuvées. Inspired by the bottles of old, they are made of dark glass that filters 99% of damaging ultraviolet light, with the slimmer neck reducing the risk of oxidization. In keeping with the family’s strong environmental leanings, the new bottles are made from 87% recycled glass, the highest of any current champagne bottle, and lighter than the standard one Drappier had been using. The new bottles are accompanied by new labels, with the giftboxes designed by Charline Drappier. Made entirely with juices from the first pressing, with Pinot Noir contributing more than 75%, the Carte d’Or is the inaugural inhabitant of Drappier’s new bottle. Unfiltered and with a reduced dosage, this is a champagne imbued with elegance and authenticity.
