From what I hear the cellars at Drappier are pretty impressive, they were built by St. Bernard of Clairvaux Abbey in 1152 in the village of Urville. That makes them some of the oldest caves in the Champagne region. Bubble production began many years later though in 1808 and they have been going strong ever since.
Although located in a region known primarily for Pinot Noir, which Michel Drappier refers to as the varietal that " runs through our veins", that is far from their only varietal. Along with the usual suspects of Chardonnay and Pinot Meuiner they also spend a lot of their time and effort on "forgotten and nevertheless unforgettable grape varieties". That Michel is a bit of a poet. Rarely heard of varietals such as Arbane, Petit Meslier and Blanc Vrai are integrated into their 53 hectares and play a large role in their blending.
Low to no dosage, low sulphite and great price points, always a easy go to.
Hope to see you hanging out this weekend.
PS. Don't forget to tell Dene congrats!
