Drappier : Carte d'Or

A blend of 75% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay, and 15% Pinot Meunier, this wine is the quintessential expression of the Drappier style. Only the juices from the first pressing are used and are pressed gently with mechanical low-pressure presses. Drappier uses gravity to avoid pumping, successfully avoiding oxidation. Fermentation takes place for two weeks at low temperature, followed by natural malolactic fermentation. No filtering and minimal use of sulfur. 5% of the wines are matured in barrels for 1 year to enrich the cuvee. 7g/l dosage.

With its high proportion of Pinot Noir typical of the Aube and Drappier’s style, this wine has a high aromatic richness, opening to aromas of stone fruits such as white peach. The Carte d’Or has a spicy hint on the mid-palate, adding to its complexity. Round and creamy on the finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The latest release of the NV Carte d'Or Brut was disgorged in November 2017, and it's showing well today, wafting from the glass with notions of waxy lemon rind, hazelnuts, fresh peaches and lily pollen. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with pinpoint bubbles, brisk acids and good length and definition on the chalky finish. Attractively balanced, it will gain depth with bottle age.
