The Carte d’Or cuvée is the very expression of the Drappier style. With a very high proportion of Pinot Noir one is savouring what is nearly a Blanc de Noirs. A Champagne of great aromatic richness and compexity. The taste begins with stone fruits such as white peaches and quince jelly. A spicy note emerges in a powerful and complex mouthfeel.
Food Pairing: Ideal as an aperitif, with white meat, fish of firm character and texture, cow’s milk cheese, soft cheeses.
Organic, Low Sulfite
The house, founded in 1808, produces both vintage and non-vintage cuvee from parcels of land which are particularly well exposed and extremely rich in limestone. For the most part they are located around Urville region of Champagne, where Pinot Noir, the predominant grape variety, finds its loveliest expression and allows the production of very elegant, aromatic wines.
