Drappier Carte d’Or Brut - Your new favorite Yellow Label Champagne!

‘One of the best non-vintage Champagnes to buy’ 91 Points Decanter

  • 80% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay, 5% Meunier- The wine is Pinot Noir Dominant, similar to Veuve Cliquot.
  • Drappier has been directed by the same family since 1808.  
  • Minimal use of sulfur and ½ the sugar of Veuve Cliquot 

The latest rendition of Drappier’s NV Carte d’Or is showing well, bursting with pretty aromas of peach, honeyed orchard fruit and white flowers.  On the palate, its medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with fine depth and tension and a penetrating finish- Wine Advocate 90 Points

 

Drappier Clarevallis (Organic!)

The Champagne for the Environment!

  • 75% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay, 10% Meunier, 5% Blanc Vrai
  • Low sulfites, LOW dosage (sugar) only 4g/L!
  • Organically farmed and tilled with a horse!
  • The name ‘Clarevallis’ is the abbey founded by Saint Bernard and uses fruit from the hillsides planted during the Cistercian period.  

 

Very fine and persistent bubbles. Notes of elderberry and violet. Limestone minerality rounded off by the pulp of Pinot Noir dominating the blend.  A tension in the mouth balanced by a discreet dosage and pretty bitters.  Nice complexity. It is a fresh and very delicate Champagne. 

 

Gosset Grande Reserve Brut

For lovers of Krug without the Krug price tag.   Decanter, 94 points

 

  • 45% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier
  • 7 g/L dosage
  • Spends 3-5 years on the lees for a more complex and rich wine.

The nose opens with the fresh ripeness of yellow apple and highlights of Granny Smith.  It has beautifully subtle autolysis on the palate, deepening into notes of creamy apple crumble, Golden Delicious and Mirabelle plum, while remaining utterly strait-laced.  Elegance, length and absolute freshness are inherent and quietly convincing.

 

Gosset Grande Rosé Brut

A true Luxury experience!

  • 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir
  • 8 g/L dosage
  • Spends 3-5 years on the lees for a more complex and rich wine.

A minerally rosé Champagne with a crisp, lacy mousse, this is a tightly meshed and balanced, offering a finely detailed range of crunch white peach, spun honey, pink grapefruit pith and ground ginger.  Creamy and lingering on the chalk-tinged finish. – Wine Spectator, 92 points

 

Piper Heidsieck Millesime Rare 2006

SUNNY

A beautiful wine…inside & out!


70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

 

Bearing witness to a fun-filled year, Rare Millésime 2006 glows with an iridescent yellow-green gold. Delicate, dynamic bubbles glisten in this flaxen brilliance.

The nose first offers a generous honeyed and oriental nose- an appeal to all lovers of fine food and wine.  The intense nose revels a precocious, but great, maturity. The expressive fragrances of crisp mango, white chocolate, cocoa, coffee, tropical fruits, quince and cinnamon flavored jelly lend the vintage complexity and a sophisticated vitality. 

The scent of jasmine tea paves the way for a gradually emerging minerality.  A straightforward wine, aromas of dried apricot and pink peony foreshadow a slightly vegetal structure, much like the limestone and rich loam where vanilla, yellow kiwi and Oriental spices bloom. 

The exceptionally long finish immediately impresses the palate. Hints of mocha and cappuccino dusted with cocoa confirm the fine minerality and subdue the luminous rectitude tempered by a delicate effervescence.  Dried apricots, sweet spices, vanilla underpinned with fragrant quince jelly, citron and lime envelop the palate with an Oriental and smoky, almost nonchalant, warmth.  As it warms in the glass, the wine pulses with accents of crisp honeyed pastries and Espelette pepper.  Testifying to its solar generosity, this depth underscores the wine’s taut freshness and foreshadows a magnificent longevity. – from the maker

Jeb Dunnuck, 97 points, Wine Spectator, 96 points, Long story short- It’s really good.  

Schramsburg Mirabelle Brut & Brut Rose

The everyday Shramsburg!

  • 57% Chardonnay, 43% Pinot Noir
  • America’s top house of sparkling wine!
  • 8.2 g/L dosage

Alluring and nuanced, with expressive pear, brioche and caramelized hazelnut flavors that finish on a rich, polished note. – Wine Spectator, 90 points

 

 

 

Wine Enthusiast, 91 points

  • 54% Chardonnay, 46% Pinot Noir
  • 8.1 g/L dosage
  • 20% aged reserve lots

 

This wine is delicious but subtle as it weaves tempting notes of raspberry and cream with toasted nut and baked bread nuances that provide complexity and layering.  It has both a vivid crispness and a subtle smoothness that coats the mouth and helps the finish linger.

 

Drappier Brut Nature & Drappier Brut Nature Rosé

0 Dosage! 

  • 100% Pinot Noir
  • Minimal use of sulfur.
  • All the flavor without adding any sugar!

Nose of freshly pressed black grapes of red, white and citrus fruit.  Ample palate with flesh of vineyard peach and bouquet of aromatic herbs.  Spicy notes in the finish.  A fine tightly knit Champagne of great purity.

 

If anyone wants to get me a gift…

  • 100% Pinot Noir using Saingée method.
  • Drappier has been directed by the same family since 1808.  
  • Minimal use of sulfur 

 

Floral and spice notes accent the flavors of plump cherry, almond skin, smoke and white peach on the lightly toasty palate of this mouthwatering rosé.  Firm, well-knit and chalky in texture. - Wine Spectator 92 Points
