Champagne Drappier Blanc de Blancs Signature NV

The Champagne Drappier Blanc de Blancs Signature is made exclusively from the white Chardonnay grape. However, on occasion a splash of Pinot Blanc, called “Blanc Vrai” in Champagne, is sometimes added to the cuvée in order to increase its complexity and roundness. During the vinification process only the juices from first pressing - the cuvées - are used, mechanical low-pressure presses and the use of gravity to avoid pumping, thus avoiding oxidisation is implemented. There is the minimal use of sulphur, no filtering and the assemblage takes place in vats in order to preserve as much freshness as possible. After bottling, the cuvée is aged for 2 to 3 years sur lattes (on laths). The nose brings to mind white peach and pear but also more floral notes such as peony. On the palate a mineral Champagne, lightly biscuity, creamy, supple, seductive. Ideal as an aperitif it also goes superbly with white meats, chilled smoked salmon with citrus fruits and tagliatelle with scallops.
