A Pinot Noir-based champagne of style and finesse, Carte d’Or offers delicate aromas of white peach, quince and a touch of spice. The dry, elegant palate shows an impressive degree of concentration, along with fine bubbles and a long, crisp finish.
For one of Champagne’s most forward-thinking producers, Drappier has no shortage of historic roots. An eighth-generation family business, the house was founded in 1808 and occupies magnificent twelfth-century cellars built by Cistercian monks.
Having spearheaded the revival of Pinot Noir in the region, in the 1930s, Drappier continued to innovate. Rose in a clear bottle was introduced in 1968; extremely low levels of sulphur are used and there is even a no-added-sulphur cuvee made; the liqueur d’expedition is matured for over fifteen years in oak and demi-johns; and Drappier is the only house to ferment every format, from half-bottles up to the gigantic 30-litre Melchisedech, in the bottle in which it is sold.
