A Very Rare Coteaux Champenois Dry White Wine by Drappier

The producer

With its origins dating back to the 1600's, Drappier is one of the greatest names in Champagne. It was Saint-Bernard, founder of the Abbey of Clairvaux, who first commissioned the construction of the cellars in 1152. Still the pride of the estate, these vaulted Cistercian cellars now house the greatest vintages and bottles of Champagne Drappier. But the story of Drappier Champagne really begins in 1808, when the family estate was created. The family manages a vast vineyard in Urville, a large part of which is cultivated by organic farming. The family aims, year after year, to produce a wine that authentically expresses the many facets of the terroir. The signature Champagne Drappier is characterized by a very low dosage and minimal use of sulfur. In addition to a unique style, the Champagne House Drappier is the only one to do a “prise de mousse” or secondary fermentation in all of its bottle formats, riddling and disgorging individually in the original bottles. This respect for tradition serves as a guarantee of exceptional wine, with outstanding freshness and finesse.

The wine

The brainchild of Hugo Drappier, project "Trop m'en Faut!" is the first of its kind in the Champagne region. Its aim is to express the character of a single terroir through two different styles: a still wine and a sparkling. These two wines are both made with 100% Fromenteau, the local name for Pinot Gris, which was once widely grown in Champagne. A precocious grape variety usually picked quite early in the season, Fromenteau reveals a sunny character, while also maintaining a certain freshness. And the name? "Trop m'en Faut!" translates roughly to "I will never get enough!" and is a spoonerism for Fromenteau. "Fro-Muhn-Toe" becomes "Tro-Muhn-Foe" through this clever play on words. The Drappier Trop m'En Faut still wine is a dry white wine produced in the appellation of Coteaux Champenois, reserved for the still wines produced in the region of Champagne. Only 375 bottles of this very rare dry white wine have been made.
