A family house dedicated to Pinot Noir, Drappier use natural methods in the vineyard, no sulphur or very little in the cellars and do not make filtration. They produce great and expressive Champagnes.

Once occupied by Cistercian Monks from Clairvaux Abbey, the seat of the house includes some magnificent 12th century vaulted cellars. They are the former supplier of Charles de Gaulle.

Cultivated in as a natural way as possible, the vineyard gives life to grapes rich in complex aromas which allow making of Champagne with well established characters in exceptional bottles.

Low pressure pressing. Only 1st press is used. Cool fermentation at 17°, lowest level of SO2 in the Champagne region. Some Cuvées are vinified with no sulphur. Ten days in small tanks. 40% matured in oak foudres of 5000 litres of fine Allier French oak, from 6 to 18 months.
