The Oddbins Take

When you think Pinot Noir you picture deliciously soft, silky and smooth red wines with juicy red berry flavours and earthy aromas, right? Not necessarily...


Luckily, the brainboxes at Drappier know that when you remove the skin, Pinot Noir grapes help to create ludicrously rich, aromatic and elegant champagnes. The Cuvée Saint-Georges, for example, uses a high proportion of it to offer fine yet rich aromas of stone fruits and white peaches. A lending hand from Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier gives this bubbling beauty a deliciously complex palate with hints of spice and notes of quince jelly.


Forget what you think you know about that little red grape and open your taste buds to this exclusive and sensational champagne. Cheers!

Champagne Drappier is an independent family house devout to the Pinot Noir grape. Cultivated in as natural a way as is possible, the vineyards are the key asset for the house and spreads over 100 hectares. Since 1808, the Drappier family have designated exposed and highly calcareous plots, mainly located in and around Urville, where Pinot Noir has the potential to achieve its finest expression, ultimately producing fragrant and stylish wines.

Only natural techniques are used within the vineyards for organic growing, with no sulphur or very diminutive amounts in the cellars and zero amount of filtration for a Champagne of great expression.

Winemaker Michel followed his parents’ footpaths in the industry and studied Viticulture and Oenology in Beaune, Burgundy. Following his studies he worked as oenologist at Piper-Heidsieck in Riems, Chandon-Napa, before finally taking over the winemaking at the family House Drappier in 1979. Ever since, he has used his Burgundian wine education to dedicate his time to producing the best Pinot Noir driven Champagnes.

Exclusive to Oddbins, the Cuvée Saint-Georges is the very essence of Drappier’s classic style with its high proportion of Pinot Noir. The Champagne offers a fine yet aromatic richness with scents of stoned fruits, such as white peaches. Spicy hints announce a powerful palate that displays a delightful complexity with a characteristic note of quince jelly.
